Happy 11th Birthday Crafters Companion!

Hi gang!

The Crafter’s Companion team are celebrating their 11th birthday this week!

General Birthday weekArtboard 9-250x250

They have so much in store for everyone this week and loads of brand new products including this gorgeous new fat quarter bundle!


I couldn’t wait to get making so I made a very special patchwork cushion, that you could win!


I used the Sizzix Big Shot and a Bigz die to make the triangles, although I cut WAY too many! Always more for another project I guess!


With patchwork it’s really important to stick with blocks. Make a block of 2, then 4 then add it to another block of 4 so it’s 8 and so on. You could carry on and make a huge quilt! One day, I will!


So, how can I win this fab cushion you ask? Well… Crafter’s Companion will be playing pass the parcel with selected blogs and on the Crafters Companion Facebook page they will post something like ‘The Music has stopped on Loti’s Blog – she now has the parcel and will have it for the next 2 hours between 2pm and 4pm! Go and comment to WIN!’ 

…And that’s what you have to do! Comment on this post between the allocated time and make sure you leave your email address so when I choose a winner I can get in touch. The cushion will make it’s way to you within two weeks after the event. The Hop starts at 12pm on 20/10/16 and ends at 9pm on 30/10/16 so keep your eyes peeled here!

Blog Hop

Don’t forget Crafter’s Companion are releasing lots of brand new products all week including a Pretty Pillows CD Rom by Debbie Shore and the gorgeous fat quarters I used in this project! Maybe comment below what you hope to get your hands on, I’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to the most. Check out all the wonderful things Crafter’s Companion have in store for you this week right here!

    Tricky to piece together. If you like puzzles maybe you’ll like quilting. I like puzzles may be I should give quilting a go.
