Spellbound Quilted Cushion Covers


I'm off to a great start for the third quarter of the finish-a-long. I started these cushion covers back in February, after I purchased the Mini Quick Curve Ruler and wanted to play with it. I have really come to love piecing curves. And these curves are so easy to sew up.

 I picked up some Spellbound by Cotton + Steel last fall at my LQS. Since I already had a few Halloween mini quilts, I figured cushions would be perfect for some fall decor (let's be honest this will be on my couch very soon and won't be removed until Thanksgiving!) For each cushion I decided to do a different layout, as I didn't want them to be matchy matchy. The fabric coordinates and that was plenty for me. Once I started quilting them, I was on a roll and didn't want to stop until I had finished these bad boys.


I love the curved herringbone of the cushion. For the quilting I did a basic grid style, but didn't fill in all of the blocks and I love the effect. I like the combination of the curved piecing with the straight line quilting, gives just a nice clean look.


I like the scallop design of this cushion. For the quilting I again did straight lines, but as zigzags. I have decided I need to do more zigzag quilting!

Now to make more cushion covers so I can swap them out whenever I please.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Modified Quick Curve Ruler Mini table runner pattern
Dimensions: 18 inches x 18 inches
Quilting: various straight lines motifs

Happy Sewing!

Mini Modern Maples Cushion Cover | Scrap Project 6

Ahh, I just love fall! Hands down my favorite season, especially in the UP. There are a few leaves starting to change color and I'm so excited. I'm looking forward to a color tour in a few weeks and really hope I have a few quilts done so I can take some quilt in the wild photos. So with fall rolling in, I figured I would make a fun little fall inspired cushion cover. And since I've been on small scale sewing kick, I thought a mini modern maple cover was just what I needed for my living room. Plus, lets face it this was just a perfect reason to dig through the scrap bins and use up those small little scraps. My mini maple block finishes at 3 inches and when added to a mini 9 patch block it makes for a lovely scrappy cushion cover. For the quilting a did a orange peel design and while a little wonky, I love it! Lately I've been at a lose as to what I want to quilt on my quilts, so this was a nice change. I quilted this cover on my Janome HD9. This bab

Bonnie & Camille Sampler Quilt | A Finished Quilt

so last year i taught a BOM at my local quilt shop. i had already made up the sample quilt, so i needed to make blocks along with my students. well thank goodness for a couple of Bonnie & Camille layer cakes just waiting for the perfect project. the blocks are for the Vice Versa Sampler Quilt from AnnaMarie Chaney ( here is my original quilt ) but this time i decided use the Bonfire Sampler (also from AnnaMarie Chaney) setting for this set of blocks. i love those big HST they just work for this quilt! i just love this quilt and always knew it would be given to someone. i just didn't know who that someone would be. well as i was quilting this up, it finally occurred to me who i would send this along too. when we moved, one of the girl's church grandmas was rather heartbroken that we were moving. so i sent this to her as a surprise and when it showed up she called telling me that this just made her day! and that right there is why i quilt!

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye
