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.
