Boxed them! Cathedral Window Patchwork Cushions

A Modern Look to Traditional Cathedral Windows

A finish after a long time…

Cushions for my library bench…

This project seemed ill-fated from the beginning and one that would end up in my long list of UFOs ( unfinished objects). The first roadblock was when I made wrong calculations and ran short of the turquoise fabric! That was sorted out by adding a strip of the printed black and white fabric at the back.

The problem with measurements did not end there. The original covers were thick upholstery material and finished at 17″. When I stitched my cover that size, it turned out to be 1/2″ too big and had to be re-done.

Ripped, trimmed and re-stitched. This is much smarter!

Then the zipper for the next cushion cover misbehaved and I switched to a Velcro closing for the other two.

Well, all is well that ends well! I am quite happy with how my study/library looks now.

The bench sitting between two bookshelves…

I like that!

A cathedral window runner in the reverse combination on the table across the room and my Palat! mini on the wall.

The Palat! quilt has also found its place on the wall…

I placed my Octopus quilt on the chair where the Husband’s guitar usually rests, to add some orange zing to the room!

My Octopus quilt adds a zing to the study!

An old piece of embroidery in the same colour to complete the picture…

This was moved from kitchen to the study because it matched so well with my colour theme!

So now I need to take up one of the other bedrooms. After the re-painting of my flat, which starts tomorrow…
