We had a pincushion swap at the OMQG. I had never made a pincushion before. I don't know why...
The only rules I had to follow were that it was to be no bigger than 6" square and my partner didn't want pastels.
This is what I made:
It was so much fun!! I love log cabin blocks so picking a block was easy. I decided to machine embroider my partner's initials in the middle. I used some of my favourite scraps. My mom had bought me some sand for pincushions at a quilt shop a couple years ago so I used that to fill it. It gave it a really nice weight. I hope my partner likes it. I had so much fun making it, I think I'll be making more!
In return, I received this beautiful pincushion from Laura:
My favourite part is the embroidery:
It already has taken up a special spot by my sewing machine. Thank you Laura!
