I spent a lovely, relaxed Victoria Day long weekend enjoying time with my family, gardening and sewing another cushion cover. I've been admiring the "Love Beads" quilt from the book the Modern Quilt Workshop for ages now, so I decided to try making a "bead" using some of my scrappy yardage. I love trying new ideas out on a small scale - cushion covers are a just the right size for experimenting.previous two designs. Although I didn't quilt this cover as densely as the other two, I did have some fun free motion quilting a flower design into the patchwork circle (like I used for this quilt) and then hand embroidering some "petals" around it.
Belle and I will be using it from now on for sewing in invisible zippers.
The covers have made for some fun Spring sewing!
