Cushion covers

Last week I finished the three cushion covers!
Here they are, happily (I think!) posing on the couch. Each is a different design, but all three have the little chapel in the center.
All of them are 'stitched in the ditch' and I have quilted around the little chapel.


This is the first one I made...


#2...


#3...


The back... I decided to free motion quilt the back in a meandering design... I added another piece of fabric and quilted them together. All covers have a zipper on the back.


The Polar Bear quilt and the 'Sun & Earth' quilt are  FM-quilted and ready for the binding, which I hope doing next month.
These days I'm working on a few Christmas gifts - top secret! :)

Your pillows are lovely! You did a great job. Hope to see some more...maybe on your Etsy shop!

Your cushions look great. I like the way you have used the fabrics with different patterns. Are they for you to keep or are they Christmas gifts?

Vad fint det blev med huset/kyrkan i mitten. Kuddar är ju faktiskt en bra storlek att "träna" sig att sy stjärnor...som jag behöver göra.

They're all great. I love the way they're different, yet they work together cos you used the same fabrics, and had the same picture of the chapel in the middle.

I so enjoyed reading your blog. It's so interesting to me that quilters the world over have so much in common.
