There is a special teacher at my sons school who has been helping him in the last few months and I wanted to make her a present. I thought about buying flowers but just wanted to do something more personal. So I decided to make her a cushion cover.
This is it finished. It is Amy Butler fabric mostly. The solid is kona ash. The dots are ta dot sea. I love those dots!
Here it is pieced. I used an amy butler charm pack and so the squares were 2.5" when cut and the finished squares are 2" finished. The side strips were cut 3" wide.
I quilted it with simple lines 0.25" from the seams. I always use a lining for my cushions. Here I used a white fabric that is quite thick and I ended up using that for the back too.
Here is the back. I used a zip.
I finished the edges by sewing the back to front right sides together and then I cut off the excess batting etc and turned it the right way. I then do a line of stitching about 0.25" from the edge. I like this way and it is easy.
This gift was hand delivered today by my son and I think the recipient was happy.
The chair is not finished but that is another post.
