One of two pin cushions made for a swap. I was hoping Karen would love it! She did!
This is the second pin cushion I made for Karen!
I made one for myself too!
swap project went like this: Using flickr create a picture mosaic of
your favorite pin cushions. Karen, my swap buddy, requested that she
wanted a purple pin cushion. One of her pictures within the mosaic was a
pin cushion with a variable star with an inked image of flowers in the
center made with a different color of fabric. I didn't have a pattern to
follow so I found a similar square shaped pin cushion and used it as a
guideline for sizing the pattern pieces. Using Electric Quilt I printed
off a foundation for a 3 inch variable star to paper piece and cut
borders to size for the top piece. The filler is crushed walnut shells.
