Granny Square Cushion Covers

A finish this week – and posted on Friday! There was a sneak peak of these Granny Square Cushion Covers here, but now they are covering up the cushions they were intended for.

This was another request from The Sister. It started with her asking The Mother if she could make pillow cases. The answer was – sure, she’d made them before and she thought she could again. When the project arrived, it was actually covers for old cushions to freshen them up. That’s when the project came my way.

I think the first two (of four total) turned out not too bad and I’m considering them a dry run for the first of the Grandma quilts. The pattern is fromĀ Lori Holt’s Great Granny Squared book and it’s really easy to follow – I think I read somewhere that she also has an updated book with strip piecing instructions, but I used the original and it wasn’t bad.

And it’s Friday, so linking up with Finish-it-up-Friday over at CrazyMomQuilts.
