Quilted Ottoman

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My first effort at piping and the different quilting motifs. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the piping rope that already comes covered in fusible webbing, I got it from my local quilting shop and it was so easy! To make this really solid it required a LOT of wadding. I fortunately have a access to a shop called Reverse Garbage where I got heaps of wadding really really cheap. I put 2 massive rolls of the stuff inside this thing.

What you will need

  • Fabric
  • Batting
  • Wadding
  • Piping Cord and Thread

What a GREAT idea!! What size is your ottoman??

Thanks! The top is about 20 inches in diameter, the strips around (ie circumference), were a bit over 60 inches long and it stands about 14 inches high. Glad you like it!
