Golden Swirl Cushion

Golden Swirl Cushion
 
I started this as a response to a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge.  It never got to the cushion stage because it was way too large.  I had based the size on the old cushion.  However, because the edges had cording, it had to sit absolutely flat to look good. 
 
Previously, I had cut the top down and carefully taken the cording off and totally apart.  The other thing I did not like about the original was the way the ridges in the cording stood out.  This time I wrapped the cording in raw, but washed, canvas.  The cording now has a nice smooth look. 
 
Why does it take me so long?  I spent almost 5 hours just finishing this up.  The good thing is that it sits nice and flat, not bunched up on the edges of the hanging chair.

This is seventy, number 14.
