tree cover giveaway

I can finally give my giveaway a name!
A Tree Cover Giveaway.

Because at last, after much dilly dallying, ive made a cushion cover!

Its been running for quite some time already and youve all been wonderful and patient through the holiday season for me to come up with something worthy.

Thanks to all who have inspired me with their confidence but a special thanks must go to Abbe from Copper Patch who insisted (nicely) that I make something with a tree on it. Thanks Abs! Without your great suggestion I would never have honed in on that awesome japanese tree quilt and thought to sew this. The inspiration came from the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival set on Flickr.

Ive used a blanket for texture and then different vintage and craft prints for the mix. The back is a soft cotton velveteen with an envelope opening. Ive managed a bit of a photography for a tutorial, while putting it together, if anyone is interested?

During this time ive crossed the threshold of a hundred followers too! Thanks for the boost!

The post for the giveaway is here if you want to be in the running, ending the last day of January,
monday the 31st. Ill announce the winner on tuesday morning.

Gorgeous cushion Wendy, the trees are a great idea, love the colours you've chosen for them too. Whoever wins it will be thrilled.

That cushion is amazing! I think you are amazing! I'm not going to enter because I have already been lucky enough to receive a Textured Leaf package of treasures but I am jealous of whoever does win. X
