A small finish!

I haven't finished any quilts yet this year but this is my 2nd cushion cover!

We only have 4 of these Ikea armchairs in our living area at the moment, but we're planning to get a new corner leather sofa when hubby gets his annual bonus in March. So I want to make sure I have plenty of cushion covers by then to change out whenever I feel like a fresh look.

I picked a neutral beige background fabric then did wavy lines quilting across the background fabric using a variegated brown and beige thread and then appliqued on the foundation paper pieced circle, once it was secure I appliqued the hand pieced hexies on top of the center hole in the circle.

As you can see it was a gloomy day here in Denver, perfect for sewing! The snow did ease up for just a little while so I could get these pics though thankfully.

I want to make about three or more cushion covers for each color theme, so I will make more plaid cushions using different patterns so they 'match but don't match'.

I love the mix of a modern inspired FPP circle and traditional hand pieced hexagons and then applique. For a simple cushion it actually uses quite a few techniques!


  1. cushions very nice and will brighten up the dullest day. Snow looks cold! here it is still mild but have been warned the cold is on its way!
