The “Dahlia Cushion Cover ” is a quick cushion cover pattern to showcase a feature print at the centre of your cushion.
Quilted cushion cover details: – Cushion cover top finished size: 19 inches x 19 inches. – Block A finished size: 9 inches x 9 inches (1 block needed). – Border 1 and 2 strip size: 2.5 inches x length as required.
My choice of fabrics as shown in image 1.
Fabric requirements: – 0.25 meter of feature fabric or sufficient to fussy cut your featured fabric (Kaffe Fassett). – 0.25 meter of orange dotted fabric. – 0.25 meter of large orange stripes fabric (Tula Pink). – 0.5 meter of purple print fabric (for cushion back). – 1 square 20 inches x 20 inches piece of wadding. – Matching thread.
Cutting The centre of the cushion is made up of a single snowball block. Which I will refer to as Block A: – Cut out Block A templates A-B from template provided in no3quiltstudiogroup on facebook.
To make Block A you require: Patch A – Select your favourite image and fussy cut 1. I am using the dahlia flower from a Kaffe Fassett fabric (see image 3). Patch B – cut out four patches from the plain purple fabric.
For Border 1 cut four strips of 2.5 inches x length (as required) from orange dotted fabric.
For Border 2 cut four strips of 2.5 inches x length (as required) from orange stripped fabric ensuring that you cut the strips width wise (as shown in image 4).
Assembling Join patch A to each of the corners of patch B and press (see image 5 and 6).
Borders Join the border strips with mitred corners as shown in the image below to complete the cushion cover top. The finished size should be 18.5 inches x 18.5 inches.
Quilting The cushion cover top is completed by free motion quilting around the shape of the dahlia flower and stitching a criss-cross design on the borders.
