Seriously cute Pincushion

I picked up the Quilt Quick Quilts magazine #117 (Nov. 8, 2010) on a mini shop hop with two friends this week and it had this seriously cute pin cushion pattern in it. Since I'm all caught up on all my other projects (LOL), I thought I'd squeeze this little project in. I need a pincushion for my cutting table as I'm always walking back to my thread and snippet catchers at my sewing stations. I put some real sheep wool against the front of it and filled the back up with plastic pellets to give it some weight. It's almost like a bean bag! Here is the finished pincushion with blue and yellow pins in it :-).

OK, back to my UFO's :-).

LOVE it Jacqui! Are those the fabrics you picked up at one of our thrift shop stops? Really neat!

That's really cute and in my favourite colours too!

A nice diversion from your UFO's! The quilt show deadline is fast approaching--we will have to get together to sew again soon.
