Another New Pincushion



I admired a pincushion on Katja's blog and she kindly sent me the pattern. I made the dark one and then, unable to stop at one, I made the other one. The first one is done in metric and for the second one I switched to inches so I could use my quilting rulers and squares. Lucky Canadians, we have both types of measuremnts on most of our rulers and tape measures (but usually not on quilting tools for some reason. I guess there would be just too many numbers and it would get confusing.) so it was easy to switch. I did a better job on the second one. I love this pincushion for my hand quilting because it has room for scissors, thimble, thread, etc. Thanks, Katja, for sending me the pattern.

just catching up on reading blogs. I like the pincushions you've made. I also like the fabrics you used for your yin yang bag.

Darling pincushions, Joyce! How does your chick feel about these? ;-)

Hi Joyce, you were pretty quick in making them. It was a pleasure to send you the selftranslated pattern. I was not aware, that you have inches and cm.

Neat pincushions!

Do they unfold so you can get at the center?

Those look great - and I see they have the place of honor on the quilt you are currently hand quilting!

Cheers!

Really cute pincushions...and so different. Were they hard to put together?

I love the pincushion. I have never seen anything like this before. Will you be so inclined to show us in a post how you made it?

Please show us how the pincushion is made! (and the Pembina area looks lovely in your photos; we don't have fall colour in England yet)

Hi...I got a similar pincushion. Made this after a norwegian pattern I bought at our annual quiltmeeting this year.
