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.
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.
