Christmas Cathedral Windows Cushion

I’m really excited to showcase this stunning Christmas Cathedral Windows Cushion.  It’s been designed by Suzanne Campion one of my customers.  I approached her earlier on in the year to make something using my exclusive fabrics. You may remember the cushion she made. As a result of this, lots of people asked for the pattern at The Festival of Quilts.  I asked Suzanne if she would ‘guest design’ the pattern for us.  Here it is.  Suzanne has made the cushion in these gorgeous Christmas colours. I’m selling this as a kit which is out now; the downloadable pattern will be …

I asked Sarah about the project.  She said “This was my first attempt at free motion quilting and I’m thrilled with the result.  To make these table mats, I used a Christmas scrap pack and embellished with sequins and gold thread.  I also used one fat quarter of Capel Green to make the bias for the edging.  These were really fun to make and I can’t wait to use them on our Christmas table.” This sewing project …

Christmas Tree Chocolate Holders

Sarah W from the studio has made these really sweet Christmas Tree Chocolate Holders.  They are really lovely and are the first of three projects that Sarah has made.
