    This is what I did when we weren't working on plumbing details while in the mountains the week of the 4th of July. I had to work on it up there so I could make sure it would fit! :lol: I kept thinking it was 50" across, but ti was 60" across. So its a good thing I waited to assemble it while up there! I still have one more pillow to make. Its suppose to have 3 pillows across the back.

    new cushion and matching pillows for porch swing.

    That looks great, I could do with something similar for the bench in my garden.

    Thanks everyone. It looks a lot better without all the clutter thats in the photo, but couldn't figure out how to crop it so finally just said phooey and posted it, clutter and all. I still have enough pieces to make a bed quilt so the pillows can do double duty--swing or bed (one of these days)

    Vicki-that looks really nice on your swing. So cozy and inviting. Makes me want to sit and sip a glass of iced tea and swing the afternoon away...

    Vicki,

    Love your cushions & bench seat pad, perfect choice of colours. Can I ask are they appliqued onto Calico?
