Nah, not really Murphy’s Law was firmly pushed to the side this week and I got these two cushions finished! The cushions were designed for a husband and wife. As you can see I used the same fabrics and pattern.
I did use different FMQ designs. One cushion has more angular FMQ shapes…
…and the other one has more organic FMQ designs.
I love the fact that the cushions are a set without being too similar or even identical!
I used the IKEA MINNA fabric for the back (envelope). The patterned fabric on the front is the only real quilting cotton in the whole project. All of the others are normal cottons from the regular fabric stores. I made the pillows about 19″ square as I knew that the IKEA pillow forms are about an inch smaller than the 20″ that is advertised on the package.
The pattern of the cushions is very similar to the Boomerang quilt by Emily Herrick of CrazyOldLadies. The person who commisssioned the cushions really liked that look and asked me do to try it out. I just eyeballed the pictures and gave it a go.
Please come back tomorrow for an important post ( important for me at least ) There is a blogaversary to celebrate!
