Pincushions

I belong to Kathleen Tracy's (from A Sentimental Quilter) online group called Small Quilt Talk. For Valentine's Day there was a pincushion challenge. I made a little crazy quilt heart out of some leftover French General fabric, and an old key with a heart shaped opening.


I used a piece of wire so that the pincushion could hang up - let's be honest it is more of an ornament than a practical pincushion.


It is an addition to my other pincushions I have made over the years. The oldest one is the felt one with my initials that I made in primary school in England when I was about 10. I only use a couple of them, but they make nice decorations. It seems to be popular now to have bowls of decorative, matching pincushions, maybe that is something to try next.

Photos from around -

 Today was incredibly windy.
 All the blowing snow was something to see.
 I thought the colours were so pretty.

All the best!♥︎

I love your heart pincushion!! I love to collect pincushions. I have some I made and others made by friends. None going back to win I was 10. I think that one is a treasure. Hugs,

I ♥️ The pincushion. I’m looking for something cute to make and add to a small shelf in our newly renovated bedroom. It has 3 petite pegs and I think this is just adorable....and I have an old key like the one you used. Probably not a heart opening but same type. And I have a place in my sewing room to add a small accent bowl. Never thought of a bowl of cute pincushions....another great idea. Thanks for sharing and keep warm. Rylee and I just got in from our 6 am barn trip...loved the photos btw, and having a cup of tea close to the wood stove. It’s below zero this morning....cold doesn’t bother her. She’s curled up next to me by the fire. DH still burrowed under a stack of quilts.
