The winner of our cushion competition challenge

A couple of weeks ago we asked a group of our craftiest bloggers if they wanted to participate in a competition to make the best cushion that they could with fabric from our site. We had a fantastic response from the community and after a some time deliberating over the best of the bunch, we are pleased to announce the runners up to our competition!

These cushions have been deliberated by our interior designer, Adele, who has taken in the quality of the cushion, the design, the style and the originality that has been employed. So, without further ado, here are 9 of the best runners up!

They were all fantastic and just the kind of quality of craftsmanship that we knew would come from a competition such as this. The variety in design and style, using nothing more than a little bit of fabric and a wealth of creativity is to be really commended, so for everyone who entered, a very well done from me and everyone here at Terrys Fabrics! But there is one that Adele felt was slightly more deserving than the others, so without further ado... (drum roll please)

And the winner is...

The winner of the Terrys Fabrics 'Unleash Your Creativity' Cushion Competition is... Light blue nautical starfish cushion on a green bench I will let Adele sum up her opinion on this cushion herself, in her own words: I felt that this cushion captured the spirit of the competition perfectly whilst also reminding me of time spent at the beach on a lovely summers day! This is a cushion I am pretty sure I could find a nice spot for in my own home. As they put it themselves:
This reminds me of quintessential English summers on the beach with cool ice cream, waves lapping against the shore just bliss.
So well done to Carolee Crafts for your brilliant cushion, and very well done to all who entered our competition!
