A Plethora of Paper-Pieced Pincushions
January 23, 2011 § 3 Comments
You may remember these:
I was using paper-pieced diamonds to make hexagons which I was going to make into a tumbling blocks quilt. However the colours just didn’t do it for me so I abandoned it. Then one day I had a bright idea and made a couple of pincushions from the hexagons. One I use and the other I had as a give-away prize on the blog.
Well, the other day I wanted to use paper-pieced diamonds to make a prayer quilt but when I counted them out I only had 26. The other 24 were in the unused hexagons. So in the interest of recycling combined with cutting down the UFO list (although mine is really teeny 🙂 more WIPs than UFOs really ) I decided to make pincushions from the rest of them and liberate the paper diamonds at the same time. So here they are:
I’m putting them up for sale and and you can see full pictures and details of them here. They’re completely hand-stitched.
By popular request… Mr Tiggy!
I’ve been asked a few times how Mr Tiggy is and if I could show some more pictures of him. Here is, last night, relaxing as only he knows how. See how curly he is underneath?
