Scraptastic Tuesday - November Link Up

Oops I sort of got caught out today!  How could I forget ....but it is still #scraptastictuesday!

I have been busy joining up with my lovely friends @archiewonderdog and @ochil_lynz in their #christmascushionalong.  I am hoping to give every cushion in the house a Christmas makeover as a subtle sort of Christmas decoration...well maybe not that subtle!  I also want cushions to match my #nordikquilt. 

I made a teeny little 4.5" tree block in my Nordik quilt and there wasn't a great colour contrast so I thought I should have another go.  So I drew up some colour options on EQ...

And went with this @karenlewistextiles scrappy version....in a much bigger size.  I am not a huge fan of paper piecing but really quite enjoyed this.

And here it is quilted, by hand with cotton perle, and the cushion finished.

Check out my IG feed @nickyeglinton if you want to see more cushions - three are finished and one more to complete (though I may have to make some others)

So onto buiness.....

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.

  1. What a fun way to update your cushions!

  2. Cushions are a great way to update your seasonal decor. Your tree pattern is perfect for the season.

  3. I have been watching the cushionaganza on instagram!
    If you have any suggestions on how to link from instagram, let me know. I only get an error message.

  4. That is one gorgeous cushion Nicky, some of those pieces look tiny!
