First the quilt, now the cushion

For Christmas last year I made both of my sisters rag quilts. These have been a great hit, and I know that they are perfect for snuggling under on the sofa on a chilly evening. But of course for even more comfort what better than a cushion to relax with. Cue the perfect idea for a birthday present.

The original quilt was made with a layer cake of Moda’s Mod Century by Jenn Ski. I fell in love with the fabrics so much that I bought a fat quarter bundle of the collection after I had made the original quilts. For the cushion I opted for a somewhat limited selection of fabrics and went with a simple design, a quilted front with six blocks of colour and a reverse featuring mostly strips of minky I had left over from making the quilt itself.

I think it looks great on my sister’s sofa alongside her quilt. I just hope she enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed making it.
