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 baby has so much power, quilting is a breeze. Though one day I will have a longarm!
With this cushion cover, that brings me to 6 scrap projects. Every last piece of fabric, including the backing came from my scrap bins/piles, even the batting was a scrap. Even with my scrappy sewing lately, my scrap bins never seem to empty out. The scraps just keep coming, so I will just keep sewing them!
