It's been a few weeks since I made a pin cushion, right? (Just two, I guess! Ha!) I needed a finish for today and the hexi block I made last April was just sitting around, waiting to it to become a finished object. So, last night while my husband and I were watching a movie, I hand stitched the block onto the gray background. I wasn't completely sold on the gray right away, but after I quilted it up, it looked so much better. I guess it just needed the texture.
I had picked out this backing for the pin cushion a few months ago. I love it so! It's sugary sweet, but a nice compliment to the front.
I love little projects like this because you can quilt the daylights out of them, but it doesn't take forever to finish it! And, as an added bonus, it uses up scrap batting.
This is my batting pile after I had paired it down a few weeks ago. I still could make 1000+ pin cushions! Or more! Ha! At least it's tidy for the time being....
It's hard to tell the scale of it, but it measures about 6" x 6.375". I do love a large pin cushion!
It looks like my pin cushion bowl is lacking orange! And no red polka dots, either. I'd better fix that....and quick! :)
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday!
