Batik boho fun: making a quilted cushion cover

Time to savor spring and all the beauty that is blooming! One of my favorite places to enjoy watching and listening to nature come alive again is on my front porch drinking coffee. Since it’s still a little too chilly to do that comfortably where I live, I thought creating a new Quilted Cushion Cover to use indoors would help put me in a fresh state of mind to get ready for outside living.

The beautiful Banyan Batik iKat Sketch line also arrives in local quilt shops this Spring! The fabrics are a breath of fresh air; prints and patterns and colors that bring a fresh outlook on life. The Quilted Cushion cover will fit a 20″ cushion. I chose batiks that blend together for a relaxed, boho inspired look. The design would work well with more contrast too.
