I finally finished the secret summer house cushions!  It feels great to have actually finished them; I've lost count of how many weeks they've been hung over the top of my living room door half-done.  

These colourful cushions have been made for my parents summer house & this will be the first chance they've had to see them.

I do think they look quite good in my bedroom though. . .

Even the ones that are meant to be square have turned out slightly
oblong.  I do really like them, but always like to point out the imperfections.

For the reverse sides I used some upholstery weight fabric from Ikea.

The idea for these long cushions came from the Sew Mama Sew pillow month tutorial by Julie from Jaybird Quilts.

The quilting is a mixture of machine and hand stitching.

All that remains now is for the collection/delivery.  I think I'd better stash them out of the way for now in case I get too attached.


  1. Wow, they are beautiful! They look fantastic as a 'herd'!

  2. I especially love the ones with the colourful stripes. They look retro to me and very homey!

  3. Love these, and the backing - I used the black for daughter's curtains, and now need more for a cushion!


I'd love your comments
