In Brit Bee we are swapping Christmas cushions and previously I have given you a peak of what I have been making.
I sent my cushion off to my swap partner last week and now that she has received it, I can now reveal my partner and the cushion!
I was making for Judith and this was how the cushion turned out.

And the back...

I was anxious that I had filled the brief which was Christmassy but without Christmas fabric. I know that Judith likes modern so I was a little out of my comfort zone but I think that I may have pulled it off. I love this block and so I used it again to make a cushion for my Mum.
My Mum has asked me to make her a cushion for Christmas so I have made a small 12" cushion. Again these colours are not within my comfort zone but I do like that little bird.

Isn't it amazing how the same block can look so different?
I am gradually whittling down my Christmas sewing list and there are still 6 sewing days left!!!
