The Nutcracker and Mouse King Christmas cushions are Foundation Paper Pieced projects. The centrally pieced sections with the faces have borders added to them to create the cushion fronts.

Once finished, your Nutcracker and Mouse King FPP cushions will measure approximately 14″ square. The central FPP sections are 10″ finished and of course can be used in other patchwork projects.

DIFFICULTY

When it comes to the paper piecing element of the project, I would recommend this pattern to a confident beginner. There are a couple of small pieces and there are a few seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on the construction diagrams), but if you take your time, it is achievable.

This pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no FPP technique tips included with the instructions (see below for links to tutorials).

If you are feeling confident or adventurous you can add additional detail to the cushions using free motion or straight line quilting (as I have done in the samples shown here). Guidance has not been included for this optional embellishment.
