Quilted Slipcover

This slipcover was made from 3 full/queen sized quilts my customer purchased from Marshalls. Sewing the slipcover from quilts was easier than I originally thought. The quilted fabric stretched and conformed beautifully to the shape of the sofa. I pre-washed the quilts in HOT water and dried on a HOT setting. I recommended that the customer use a commercial size washing machine for future washings. Yet another sofa calling me to curl up with a book.

Here is the before picture of the sofa.

The after picture. I don't like photographing my slipcovers in the outdoors, however since my customer is in the middle of moving I was unable to place the slipcover on the sofa at her house.

The side view pictures show how well the quilted fabric conformed to the shape of the sofa.

Slipcovers with ties --Oh my!

The open arm chair slipcovers take more time but they are well worth the end result. These slipcovers are completely lined. I really like the way they turned out. My customer took these great photos for me.

This is a before and after picture of the back.

This picture below, inspired the look for these slipcovers. My customer especially liked the mini ruffle detail. However, I don't remember the website this picture was from. This chair is from Wisteria.

These dining chair slipcovers were done for the same customer. I love this look! White slipcovers are my favorite by far!!

Here is a picture of them in the customers house.
