This month’s American Quilter magazine landed in my mailbox last week with the cutest pin cushion pattern in it! I’ve been wanting to make another pin cushion ever since we had our pin cushion exchange at my quilt guild a couple months ago. (I’ve also had half a bag of crushed walnut shells left over and absolutely no idea what to do with them.)
The pattern is called “Mini Pinnie” by Kitty Wilkin and it’s a foundation pieced pattern that is super easy.
I had nothing going on last Sunday afternoon so I pulled out some scraps and got to work. I don’t recommend that you work on this while Skyping with family as that gets a little distracting. My pin cushion came out a little wonky and I’m going to blame it on that but I still love it.
I was able to finish this little project in only a couple of hours. It would make a nice gift for someone or just something pretty for yourself.
