A Poppy Pincushion

Poppy Pincushion made using CQ Pincushion Tutorial at Ivory Blush Roses
This is the second pincushion I made using the wonderful tutorial on Lisa's blog, Ivory Blush Roses.

I made this one for my mother-in-law. She loves gardening and sewing.  Poppies are her favorite flower, so I picked up the central fabric some time ago with thoughts of her.

I pieced the block at the same time I pieced the pink pincushion I made for my mom.

I kept the stitching simple, to leave plenty of room for pins.

You may recognize the seams from my TAST post last week. 

I think I improved at stitching the ribbon along the bottom this time around.  I did love using the black velvet riboon!

One more hand made gift for 2014 is now complete!
