The vintage square quilt cushion cover is one of my favourite sewing projects. Inspired by The Willow Market’s vintage cushion covers, I started making this design using TalesofCloth’s papers. I can easily baste and stitch a vintage square quilt cushion cover while watching two episodes of a Korean drama.

I have amassed a huge inventory of fabric over the last couple of years, and I really need to start using as much of the inventory as possible. Most of my fabrics are by Art Gallery, others are from Moda, Michael Miller, Cotton & Steel, Riley Blake, Windham, Kona Cotton, Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler, Tula Pink. I get most of my fabric in the local shop Sin Mui Heng, overseas in Japan when I am there on holiday, and occasionally, through online websites such as The Hawthorne Supply or 2Quilters.

2Quilters is a local online haberdashery and carries a large supply of Windham and Robert Kaufman. They also sell spools of Aurifil thread. I don’t buy often from them, and I should. #supportlocalbusinesses

This ubiquitous Japanese wave motif is one of my favorites. I wish I had bought more of the fabric in Japan.

I have been experimenting with making a covered zipper back piece by watching various tutorials on Youtube. I think I have finally found a Youtube tutorial by Amanda Rolfe that offers a method which is simple and encourages the use of selvage. Try it!
