Patchwork floor seat cushion cover

My hubby has a few floor seat cushions. Every night he sits  on the cushion practicing  his Buddhist meditations and prayers. Last weekend , I made a patchwork cushion cover with an invisible zipper , to replace one of the old one.

This cushion cover is made up of 144 pieces of 2 in.  x 2 in .( seam allowance  1/4  in. ) squares patches from my fabric scraps.The finished size is 18 in. x 18 in.

The back of the cushion cover is a recycled green cotton fabric from an old skirt of my sister.

My husband is happy with  this new cushion cover that I made for him. I am happy too because I made  full use of my fabric scraps by turning them into colourful patchwork.


  1. es hermoso y útil...yo también tengo un cojín para meditar

  2. OMG!!! 144 pieces of 2" x 2" blocks... This is awesome, PY!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colors you used. Beautiful work!!

    BTW we use floor seat cushions in our household, too. We call it 座布団 (za-bu-ton) in Japanese ;)
