A few more


This pincushion thing is so addictive!

I went from wondering what all the pincushion fuss was about, to making plenty of my own!




These are made from some leftover blocks from my Mon Ami Schnibble that I pieced a year ago.

I don't remember why I had these extra blocks, but who cares?  They certainly came in handy and I'm really glad I saved them.






A few coordinating Kate Spain charm squares worked perfectly on the back of these blocks and some more pincushions were quickly added to my collection.

Maybe you have a some small leftover blocks laying around that are just waiting to become pincushions.

You might want to take a look!
