26 Inch Swoon Cushion
The last time I went on a trip to Minneapolis not only did I go to my favourite fabric store but I also went to IKEA, I had a plan in mind and dragged along hubby to be my helper! I wanted some cushion inserts and knew that they were pretty cheap at IKEA. Well I hit a jackpot they also had duck feathered cushions. I bought 6 of the 20 inch cushions and also bought a 26 inch cushion too. I had plans to make the 26 inch cushion into a swoon pillow for my bed. After using up some of the half square triangles the other day I was on a roll with making cushions so decided to make a Swoon Cushion and here it is
This time I fussy cut the centre square of the star using the same fabric I used for the border on my quilt and then incorporated the binding fabric into the star and used up a fat quarter I had left over from originally making my swoon quilt. I think from now on when I buy fat quarters to make a quilt I will buy a few extra just in case I want to make cushions or I mess up cutting.
This cushion is just perfect for relaxing in bed and reading a good book. I am currently reading 40 Love by Sophie Kinsella, a completely easy read that requires no effort the sort of book that you read just before bed. What are you reading at the moment, have you a favourite book you can recommend.
