I Love this new little pincushion I made from a spare block.
Here is a photo journal of what I did!!!
|You can see that I had already used part of this block for a|
quilted postcard, Notice that there is still space for a quilted
bookmark and another postcard!
|I added a little more quilting before I cut the pincushion out.|
|Measuring how much space I have for the pincushion and|
cutting it out below.
|For the back of the pincushion I decided to use a wool|
remnant I had. I love it too!!!
|For the backing I used some fusible interfacing. This is the|
best product!! Once fused, it gives the fabric more durability
but isn't stiff. You don't even know that it has been added.
|I used this circle as a guide to round the edges.|
|All sewn together|
|and just need to handstitch the opening.|
|Perfect. Not sure if I will keep or give away or put in my Etsy Shop!!|
So, if you have an extra block laying around and you aren't sure what to do with it, practice some free motion quilting first, then make a pincushion, or a quilted bookmark, or a quilted postcard!!! I am sure I could come up with more items to make. An eyeglass holder, a little wallet.!!
Take care, Happy Quilting and I will see you again real soon. Martha
