Ready for Valentine’s now with this adorable quilted cushion by Jean Boyd December 30, 2020 written by Jean Boyd December 30, 2020 545 Yesterday I showed you how to make the front of the heart design cushion after cutting all the shapes on the Brother ScanNCut SDX225. Brother ScanNCut SDX225 The cushion front measures 14″ x 15″. Completed cushion front The back of the cushion is made using (2) 9½” x 14″ pieces of fabric. Sew a narrow double-fold hem on one 14″ edge of each back piece. Overlap the two pieces so you end up with a 14″ x 15″ rectangle (the same size as the cushion front). Layer cushion front and back, wrong sides together. Stitch along outside edges using a scant ½” seam to join all the layers together. Use the dual feed MuVit foot with open toe to stitch front and back together Binding Sew the (2) 3″ strips of binding together, end to end, to make one long strip. Sew on the binding using a scant ½” seam and stopping ½” from each corner so you can make a mitered fold. This will give you a ½” finished size binding. Fold the binding to the back and hand-stitch in place. If you need more help with binding, you can see my detailed instructions for sewing on binding on this previous post on QUILTsocial. Binding is sewn on the cushion Cushion Form Cut (2) 14½” x 13½” squares for the cushion form cover. Place the pieces right sides together. Stitch all around, leaving a 5″ opening on one side. Turn right sides out. The cushion form is finished Stuff with Fairfield Poly-fil stuffing. Stitch the opening closed by hand or machine. Place the cushion form inside the cushion. You might have to add a little more stuffing in the corners to fill them out. And now you have a finished heart-theme cushion!
