Another Patchwork Cushion Cover Complete
A few weeks ago I showed you one completed quilted patchwork cover for a foam cushion that I’d made for one of the kitchen chairs (blog post – here)
I said at the time that I have a lot of Projects Half Done (PHDs), including cutting up some more foam into the right size for other chairs.
And sewing together more of the squares I already had cut out to make covers for them.
So, by now I’ve cut four more pieces of foam to the required size. One for a box stool inside the front door, two for kitchen chairs, and one more of a more random size made by glueing three bits I had left together with Pinflair Glue Gel.
The glued together one needs a bit of trimming to make sides even once glue has completely dried.
I also sewed together the patchworks for the cover of the one for the box stool and quilted it. (Have a look at my previous post to see what I used as I followed the same method for these as I did for the previous one.)
This cushion was wider than my first, hence 5 not 4 blocks to each row, but it isn’t as deep front to back. Rather than cut one row in half I decided to wrap it round the front edge rather than putting the strip all the way around.
I sewed the 2.5″ (2″ finished) strips round the other three sides, which is the depth of the foam, before adding the back.
And here’s the finished cushion.
So another done and a few more to go. I do these when I feel up to doing a bit of crafting but not up to constructing more complicated blocks, so keep ane eye out a post in the future showing how I get on with covers for the two with a curved back. Need to get my brain in gear for them.
