|Pincushion made for my mom using tutorial at ivoryblushroses.blogspot.com|
On her blog, ivoryblushroses.blogspot.com, Lisa has a tutorial where she generously shares directions on creating a crazy quilted pincushion. I have a long way to go to aspire to the works of art she creates, but I had fun creating this for my mom.

Unfortunately, the pink cotton fabrics are the only ones that are practical to use as a pincushion, as the cream and white fabrics are not horribly forgiving. Luckily, my mom decided this was just too pretty to use. She plans to keep it near her sewing machine to admire when she sews.

If you are interested in making a pincushion, Lisa's tutorial is great!
If you have made a pincushion, I would love to see it. Feel free to leave a link to one in your blog or on your Flickr account.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
