We’re so excited about the first day of the Modern Makers Cushion Palooza competition… the Accuquilt Australia Major Prize has been delivered and we’re lamenting the fact that we can’t win! On top of that, the Cotton + Steel bundles have been collected and we’ve realised we’ll have to watch Jackie very carefully – she may end up absconding with a bundle!
We’ve already had our first entry from Barbel of @2nutsaboutsewing who has created a gorgeous Union Jack Flag cushion! And Bec from @skyberries has made a start on her cushion – I’m thinking it should come and live at my house (*wink wink*).
This post serves as the central post for the competition and contains all the links you will need to navigate your way around, with links back to the terms, prize information and cushion tutorial post. We also have some exciting news!
