The December Scraptastic Tuesday Link is Open


It's the second Tuesday of December, and the Scraptastic Tuesday monthly link is open. Can you believe it, the last Scraptastic Tuesday for this year, but don't worry, Nicky and I have a lot more scraps so we will be here for next year, we hope you will keep joining us too.

Imp

First, I have a couple of small updates. If you visit here often, you have already seen my Ta Da post for Imp. I have been showing off my progress on Imp for Scraptastic Tuesday for a while, so it only seems fair to show here all done here as well. In fact I love this quilt so much I could show it off every day but I will try not to do keep doing that.

Holiday Pillow top

And this holiday pillow is another scrappy project. I had these Violet Craft fabrics set aside to make napkins so I cut out the fabric for 10 new napkins. My plan was to use the leftover scraps to make a holiday paper pieced pillow using Violet's pine cone pattern. So far, I have the pillow top done, at 18" square.

I really like this pillow with this smooth dramatic look so right now I am leaning towards no quilting. I do need to do something to secure all those paper pieced seams and Krista (@poppyprint) suggested on instagram that I use fusible fleece backing which is brilliant. I can quilt it then if I like but if not all those seams will be secured and tidy. Now I just need to shop and maybe I can share the finished pillow next week. By the way, there is the #christmascusionalong on instagram that I joined as well and you can too.

Anyway, here are our Scraptastic Tuesday December sponsors and their buttons:




A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.

        Please join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I by linking up a blog post or flickr or instagram photo sharing a scrappy project, in progress or finished, or your thoughts on dealing with your scrap mountain:
        • You don't have to have joined us before, everyone is welcome.
        • One link per person, and it will be your entry into the random draw for the prizes. It is the same link up here and at Nicky's blog - Mrs. Sew and Sow - so you only need to link up on one of our blogs.
        • This link is to share with our community about using your scraps, please don't use it to advertise your own products or events.
        • You can link up from your blog, instagram or flickr, but you have to link up to be entered in the prize draw.
        • Please visit at least a few of the links, they are very inspiring, and leave comments too as everyone loves to connect. 
        • Use the Scraptastic Tuesday button and invite your friends to join us too. Please share our button, or a link or the hashtag #scraptastictuesday in your linked post or photo. 
        • The link is open until next Monday night at 10:00 pm MST. We will announce the winners next Tuesday. 
        • If you have trouble linking up, let me or Nicky know and we will get you sorted.
        Best,


        Leanne

        4. Fusible fleece is a really good solution for the pine cone cushion! And thanks for mentioning the #Christmascushionalong!

        6. I vote for leaving the cushion unquilted. It looks gorgeous as is, so I've move on to the next project and enjoy your finished cushion!
          LOVE Imp! I'm happy to see her any time you want to show her off!

        12. I can't say it enough: I am over the moon for Imp! And as for your pillow, I agree that fusible fleece is the way to go. It will give your cover some nice substance.
