Finished Swoon Cushion

This is my downsized Swoon test block that I made, before chopping up my fabric for a quilt in Katy's Swoon-along. I've made a new rule for myself, I have to finish something before I can start something new. So now I can get going on my Swoon quilt.

I made it into a cushion/pillow just for me and I really like it :) I'm going to go and put it on my side of the bed quickly before my daughter tries to swipe it!

Fabric is Mendocino by Heather Ross and it's an 18" finished cushion

Are you Swooning too?

  2. Cute cute cute!

    I downsized my Swoon too. I redrafted it to 20" and took out all the half square triangles for less seems and cutting.

  3. Gorgeous - I like the idea of scaling back a Swoon to less than 60"!

  12. Love it! My cushions disappear all the time to re-appear in two bedrooms so I know where you are coming from with trying to keep it for yourself.
