Pincushion treats!

Since we are really looking forward to SPRING (it's 13 degrees again today and the snow is up to my waist), Jeanne and I are doing everything we can to use bright colors and work on new designs that make us smile. We think the picture Jeanne took of our new pincushion and scissors keeper fits our mood perfectly.

Jeanne found the original of this pincushion at an antique mall 2 summers ago. We have been waiting for the perfect fabric and finally found it. All of these versions are from the new Rosie's Garden fabric line that was introduced at the last Houston International Quilt Market by Quilting Treasures. We just adore the vintage look of the prints and they are a charm to work with. A pin cushion and scissors keeper can be made from a fat quarter of fabric!

This new pattern is being tweaked a bit but will be posted on our web page by March 15th. We just thought you needed to have a peek at it since we think it will make you smile and think of Springtime!
