Pincushion swap



I took part in a pincushion swap run by Lisa from sweet little pretties.
Here is my one which I posted today.  The hexagons are teeny weeny - each side is only 14mm.

I made it pink! (for a change)


The side is doohikey stripes by Riley Blake. So happy and bright.
I started sewing on Friday night, after the deadline for posting - opps!
I hand pieced the hexagons, and hand appliqued and quilted them.


Then I decided I couldn't do any binding so just made it into a thick short cylinder and sent it off in the post today!
I hope you like it secret swap partner!

  10. That is just so sweet, Marianne! I'm a firm believer that if you sew and/or craft, you simply cannot have too many pin cushions scattered around your space...lol!
