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.


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.
