Pincushions




I finished my first prototype pincushion tonight for retreat.
I like how it turned out so I'm going to go ahead and make the other 2 for the swap.

I like to make fun food pincushions the best but I'm starting to run out of ideas....I've made cake slices, cupcakes, donuts and carrots. These chocolate dipped strawberries actually were quite easy and look much cuter and have better color in real life.

I also got my Cinderberries girls quilt back from Sandi, my longarmer friend. I was really nervous about sending an all embroidery top for quilting but she did a fantastic job on it so I am super happy.
Below is a picture of the quilting upclose and also a picture of the entire top before I trimmed the extra fabric off. Now all I have to do is get the binding on and tacked down and I can cross another project off my UFO list.

The quilt turned out fantastic. Now it makes me want to do some cross stitching and make a quilt from it. The pin cushion is really cute too, I'll have to see if I can figure out how to make it. Thanks for sharing
