For my next Scrap Basket Sunday post, linking with Kim, I chose more red, white, and blue fabrics since I am only working in those colors during these 39 days from Memorial Day through July 4.
Last Sunday, I pulled out a baggie full of Minick and Simpson scraps. These were left overs from a past project and I though mostly unusable as they were small and skinny. However, they worked perfectly for the next scrappy, patriotic pattern that I wanted to play with.
It's another Schnibble pattern featuring patriotic pincushions. I made some pincushions a while back, so I still had plenty of stuffing (crushed walnut shells.) The pattern gives 7 different versions and I made 6 of them. For backing I was using a piece of red wool felt and I didn't have enough for the seventh "pinnie."
This is the red wool backing.
I decided to have fun and use some of my collection of vintage, red, children's chairs to display them all.
I like the look of the very skinny logs on this one, but I really wish I had been paying attention and turned the center square so its diagonal was the same as the block's.
Of course, this is my favorite!
These pincushions are fun and fairly quick to piece, so it is nearly as easy to make a bunch as it is just one. I think one or two will go to my guild this month for their door prizes.
Have a great day!
