Pincushion Swap

The Montreal MQG held is last meeting before summer break last Wednesday. To celebrate our first year anniversary, we had  a potluck, some giveaways and a pincushion swap. We had a great time. You can read more about it here.

I had prepared this little pincushion for the swap.

Cathedral Window Pincushion

I followed this great tutorial. The only thing I made different is that I hand stitched the curves of the windows instead of machine stitching them.It was great to try out cathedral windows. I’m not sure I would have the patience to do a whole quilt like this!

We all had brought our pincushions in brown bags to keep the surprise. It is Louise who picked mine. And I picked Melanie’s pincushion.

Isn’t it cute? It was really fun to see all the variety of pincushion that were made. I’m sure this is something we’ll do again next year.

    They are really cute! Pin cushions are a great idea for trying something new without comitting to a whole quilt. I keep meaning to give Cathedral Windows a try, perhaps I'll make a pin cushion! 🙂
