Cushion Covers for my Daughters Bed!

A couple of years ago we bought an awesome duvet cover set for my daughters bed.  The print has big doilies on it in purples and pinks.
I was inspired to make cushion covers for her continental pillows (26" x 26") to mimic the cover.  I went through my stash of doilies made over the years and picked out a few that I thought would work and got cracking on the project.  I picked a Moda Solid called Eggplant and quilted it in a crosshatch style.  Small 1/2" blocks.  I used my walking foot as the guide.  The small crosshatch leaves one with a stiffer finish to the fabric and it feels gorgeous to run your hands over it.
 Then I placed the doilies onto the front and appliquéd them down.  Next step was to assemble the cushion.
 I really love how they compliment the cover.  I hope she will love them when she gets back for spring break!


  1. Beautiful cushions! They suit the duvet so well - great finishing touch to your daughter's bed.... I'm sure she will love them!

  2. What a lovely room it makes. It looks like it was all bought together. I just can't imagine any other kind of pillows that would match it better. Perfect!!

  3. What a terrific way to use old doilies and give them new life. They work beautifully with the duvet cover!

  4. Very nice combination. Love the colors.

  5. What a gorgeous pair the pillows and duvet make!! fabulous idea.
    Is that Gone Girl on the bed? I finished the book and did NOT like the ending. Booooooo!
