Tulips Cushion.

Last year I made my Mum and Dad a bed quilt for Christmas and this year I thought it would be fun to make a cushion to go with it as a Christmas gift.
After spending a morning being my usual indecisive self scouring the internet and all my patchwork books looking for the perfect  pattern / block(s),  I eventually found a pattern which I immediately knew would be just right. It was a sweet paper pieced pattern by Kristy at Quite play which I purchased from her Craftsy store.



I only had a small amount of fabric left over from the original quilt (which can be seen in the background) so I used it for the border and used fabrics from my stash for the rest. 
It was a great pattern to make but I can't seem to get through a paper pieced pattern without making loads of really silly mistakes! I love the finished result though.
Bye for now,
Maria.
