Crafting bender

So I got a bit hooked on making pincushions recently. I paper pieced those teeny flying geese to make a pincushion for myself and then couldn't stop! They were just too precious!

Next I made one for my friend Darci, who loves Tula. I used leftover bits from the butterfly quilt I made her.

And the back is pretty too with a Tula butterfly.

Then I made one for my friend Tara with a dark grey background. As you can see from all the dangling threads, that teeny crosshatch sure takes a lot of thread and time.

Then I made pink and teal geese for another friend with my favourite crosshatch fabric in light grey.

And, after bombarding people on IG with all my pincushions, I made one to give away. Oh I love this one! Its geese are made with a rainbow of Alison Glass' Grove collection and my all-time favourite black crosshatch from Carolyn Friedlander. It's backed with the teal AG print it's sitting on.

Now I really must stop with pincushions. At least for a bit. I've got lots of swaps and other projects to work on!


  1. Those are as lovely as the first one I saw. I particularly love the lavender-colored pincushion. And I like how you quilt them. Simple but sophisticated.

    1. Thank you! There's something relaxing about this type of quilting.
