This was not what I planned to make this weekend. I blame the library. I borrowed a copy of Last-Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts from the public library – and a stack of other books from there and my local guild library, but that is another story – and it is due back this week. Kelly McKaig’s pincushion pattern was the project that most appealed to me, so it had to be made before I returned the book. Yep. That is why I needed three more pincushions. Logical, really. Right?
I challenged myself to use fabrics from my scrap box, and all but one fabric came from scrap. Sadly, the pieces are so small that I have not made a noticeable dent in the box’s contents.
As usual, I stuffed them with crushed walnut shells. In a break from habit, I did not line everything with fusible interfacing.
There are no prizes for guessing which pincushion is my favourite. One day I would like to make a colour-wheel mini quilt a little like the one on page 107, but not this week.
