Golden Swirl Cushion

Golden Swirl
I got the idea for the design while cleaning. My hanging chair had the cushion I made ~ 40 years ago. Then it blended with my colors; now it was an eye sore.  Because of my tedious construction method, I spent three days working on this before I attempted the cording.  Unfortunately, I did not check the fit before I added the cording.  This is the first time I have ever attempted cording.  It took me one lone evening.  As you can see, it is still not finished.  I'm adding it to my pile of UFO's so that I can return to my bed quilt project.  If each of us made just one bed quilt for Sandy victims, we could cover half of the families.  These are going to the folks who have lost everything.  I think they need a bed quilt a bit more than I need a cushion.

This reminds me of the view down a spiral staircase, staying within a circle but going down in diminishing sizes of steps. The different textures add interest, though I wonder how it would be if the medium gray pattern was cut so as to emphasize the spiral.

Hi Ann, thank you for having made this quilt while busy in making other important quilts!
I really like your colour choice, the red is really perfect with the black and gray.
Just like Tobi said it remind me the starcases of the Sagrada Familia I've seen when I visited Barcelona :)

I see both a snail and spiderweb in this design. The off-center design is very pleasing, and the color choices work well. Very nice.
