Do you remember my little list of UFOs? Well, there was one unfinished project that didn’t make it onto the list because, quite frankly, I’d completely, totally and utterly forgotten about it.

My Swoon block, which was made with Camille Roskelley‘s fantastic pattern.

I had started on the quilting, trying some stippling and didn’t like it. I need to practice a lot more to get it smooth, I think. I buried the block in one of my drawers until last week when, with the speed of light -bang- it reappeared. I started unpicking my stippling and did some echo quilting instead. The star in the middle was hand quilted using some perle cotton.

As this is supposed to be an outdoor cushion, mainly used for our picnics in the garden I used a darkish print on the back and used a zip for the opening.

Stippi the bear seems to like it and I’m just grateful I have one less project on my list of UFOs.
