Introduction/Back Story:-

Everyone needs a ‘go to’ quick cushion for a last minute gift. This Christmas Cushion (or not – its your choice) is a simple patchwork with an ‘easy when you know how’ free motion quilting design and generous envelope closure. I love it as a quick-to-make gift for all occasions, especially with Christmas fast approaching or, if you like to change your décor with the seasons, cushions are great make no matter what the reason. Who doesn’t love a handmade gift?!
