Beautiful Bench Cushions – Liberty Quilting Cotton

Sarah from the studio has made these Beautiful Bench Cushions for her pew using some of the festive quilting cottons.

I asked Sarah about the project.  “The pew comes from a chapel I attended as a child and is therefore very special to me in my home.  I’ve been wanting something to embellish it and make it more inviting as a place to sit.  I especially liked the poinsettia quilting cotton fabric when it arrived in the studio so it was a natural choice.”

“I saw a picture of a buttoned cushion in a magazine which gave me the idea of making one for my pew.  After discussing the idea with colleagues in the studio, we decided a box cushion would not only hold it’s shape well but it would also give a more elegant finish.  The piping (bought from a haberdashers) completes the look of the cushion.  This was my first attempt at creating a box shape for a cushion.  While the top and side panel fitted together easily, it was harder to fit the bottom.  I had to take extra care to ensure the corners and centre poinsettia panel lined up accurately.”

“With the leftover ‘Holiday Berries‘ fabric, I made a simple square cushion which I stuffed with the same fibre filling and used a Capel covered button to finish it off.”

The finished cushion looks great on the bench and I’m really pleased with the finished design.  It gives a really Christmassy feel but I’m planning to use it all year round.”
