Christmas Cracker Cushion

Hello! Thought I'd pop in and show you what I did with my Christmas Cracker from the free block tutorial I shared. I turned it into a cushion cover:

I simply added borders to get to the desired size, basted and quilted as normal, then added a zippered back and machine-sewn binding. 

A simple flap of folded fabric conceals the zipper:

A zippered cushion closure is so much nicer than an envelope backing - no gaping! - and is not at all difficult. I think I need to stock up on zippers and make a few more. My naked cushions would probably appreciate it. ;)

Bye for now, 

Hope x 


  1. Oh wow! That is such a pretty cushion! You and GnomeAngel should start having a store!

    1. Thanks so much! I think I would have a hard time selling anything - I get too attached to the things I make. :)
