I made this cushion for HSG in the Cushion Cover Swap.  Had to snag her pic since I did not have a chance to take my own (I was angeling and had to make this quickly!).

I drew out the plan on graph paper, pieced it, quilted it with simple running stitches and embroidery.  The closure is a combo of a zipper and flap on the back.  This is a new style of quilting that I am doing all summer since I am trying to destash my yards of solid fabrics!

ha ha I was trying not to bust at the seams and make it a surprise! Glad you got it so quickly and that it met one of your themes!

The embroidery is actually done with two strands of quilting thread...as a quilter, I was always intrigued by embroidery being used to hold the pieces to the batting...so really, your cushion cover was an experiment! Cheesy

Glad I did not blow up the lab...Cheesy  I will try this again on a larger quilt.

Happy cushions all around!

It must have taken some time to do all of the words so large!

You should keep it since it has personal meaning to you...nice how you changed up the famous line to make it your own...and used fabric for the back that also means something to you!  Some things you just have to keep... Cheesy

I wish I had weighed myself each year and lost the few pounds I gained...they just kept creeping up but I blamed it all on age, new jobs, marriage, etc.  If I had made better eating habits, I would not be worried about my health and weight now!

Good for you for starting healthy now!  You can do it!  There are so many more nutritious foods to eat...and the cooking is not as hard as I thought it would be...I am not a cook, but these wonderful members have excellent ideas for lunch, snacks and easy cooking!

Variety and slow progress seems to be what works the best for me! I have lost about 10 pounds since January, but I am slipping back...a pound or two...but soon, it will be back up the 10 if I don't pay attention!  Up and down is not why I joined this eat along!

I am back to writing everything down and watching portions...also, not snacking due to stress! Cheesy

I cut my fabric this morning before going to the gym...I can't believe how lucky I was to have everything in my stash!

I really should be working on another swap but this one is more fun! Cheesy
