Spring Fling - school charity

It's that time of the year again - my daughter's school has a major dinner&dance fundraising evening every spring (this is the 3rd such event) to benefit the school building fund.
 I've been really good, as so far my quilts have raised just under £15000, but this year I decided to make a smaller item.  The theme of the evening is "Cool Britannia", so this as inspiration, the school now has its own flag design destined to be auctioned in a couple of weeks time.
 
The school uniform colour is purple if you wondered about the colour choices.
The red fabric is a London map which inlcudes the school location.
Text and number prints for core subjects, embroiderd school logo in the middle...
20" finished cushion.

Swimming is the main competitive sport at the school - hence the swimmers fabric.
Did you notice that neat zip - very happy with how it turned out.
