For my pincushion swap partner


Giant Pincushions
I have to tell you ladies, I am enjoying this swap!  I sent my partner, Sinta, the pink and green pincushion you see above.  I decided to make these Giant Pincushions.  You can find the link here to the tutorial by Julie of JayBird Quilts.  What a great pattern!  So easy to follow and I just love the size of these babies.  I also sent Sinta the bag in the picture below that coordinates with her pincushion.

And just for the fun of it, I sent our dear Kelly the yellow and blue pincushion and bag.  Kelly is such a dear friend to me, I thought she deserved a little surprise in the mail. 

The extra pincushion, I made for my mom.  Mom seems to be missing her pincushion.  So, this is going to be a little birthday present for her.

I really enjoyed making both of these projects and would recommend both to both expert quilters and beginning quilters alike. 

I have heard from 1 other participant that they shipped.  Don't forget to let me know!  The deadline to ship is March 26th.

I filled my pin cushion with the walnut shells and it can be used as a door stop! Dang! Is it ever heavy! I hope to have mine out the door by next weekend. Give or take a day. Yours came out so cute; but I already told you that. :)
