Cushion Cover Swap

I am participating in a cushion cover swap hosted by Sue, who is also the coordinator of Quilting Block Swaps Australia. This is a one off swap, though Sue will also be hosting a table runner swap in April (pop over to her blog and send her a message if you'd like to participate - international participants are welcome!).

My swap partner (it is done anonymously, so you don't know who is making the cushion cover that will be sent to you!) requested a cushion cover for the car in red and black. It took me quite a while to decide on the design for this cover, but I finally took inspiration from Sew, Mama, Sew! I hand stitched the binding on last night and it is ready to be mailed!

The photo isn't terribly flattering - I didn't have a cushion insert on hand so the cover is stuffed with two towels. Hopefully my cushion swap partner likes it!

What do you think?


  1. It looks great! Your partner will love it for sure!!

  2. It's very nice! Love the black and red together. I always do my pillows like that, with a little binding around the edge. Much easier than piping! Thanks for linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday:)

  3. Turned out great!! Don't know what you were worried about!! Didn't notice it before, but love the pattern on the black fabric :-)

    1. I like the pattern on the black too. I thought it might soften the black a little, so that it didn't detract from the red focus fabrics. Such a terrible photo - I always take photos at night when the children are in bed, so they are always going to be very average!!


I love to read your comments and will always endeavour to reply. Thanks for visiting - I am truly delighted!
