Christmas Cushion Competition

The competition this year at Quorn Country Crafts in Loughborough  is to make a cushion.
We had to buy a pack from the shop which contained a picture square of fabric and two small strips of coordinating fabric.
The rules were 
  • The cushion can be any shape or size up to a maximum of 14" square
  • The cushion front must include the picture square and some of the other two fabrics
  • You can add any other fabrics and / or embellishments of your own choice
  • You can use any technique ie patchwork, quilting, knitting, embroidery etc
and this is my finished piece :-

The two fabrics supplied are the green holly patterned and the mid green / gold mixture, I added dark green strip and red/gold pattern

Wording was done by hand using back stitch with thick black cotton, scroll is calico tied with red ribbon and I have written on it :-
"Dear Santa, I have been very good this year, please could I have .......................
I put a loop on it so it can be hung on the fireplace, chimney breast ready for Santa coming !

Judging takes place today 30.11.13 and the winner wins £50 worth of fabric.
