Pincushion fun

Jeanne found a wonderful antique pin cushion and took it apart to figure out how it was made. The end result is the adorable pin cushion and matching scissors keeper we designed from the old beauty. And, best of all, both are made from one fat quarter of fabric, a handful of batting and a recycled top to a butter container! We love the size, the practicality of both, and how sweet they look.

We made these up using Quilting Treasures new line of vintage-looking fabric called "Rosie's Garden". The crisp colors are perfect. We added some bias tape for accent. This pattern will be available on our web site in a week. Stay tuned!
