A Friday Finish!

It might be tiny enough to fit in the palm of my hand, but this little pincushion is finished! 

And reversible! 

I decided to try this technique after seeing a trunk show at guild that had lots of cathedral window quilts. I have never thought I could make an entire quilt of them, but thought I would try a tiny pincushion. I was right about the quilt...NOT going to happen, but I am pleased with this little bitty project. 

I learned the basics from this book, and while it was labor intensive, it was not difficult. Does that make sense? I might make a few more pin cushions, but I doubt I'll go much bigger than that. 

Basement update: all of the moisture and weird smell is gone, along with most of the flooring. The new carpet and flooring will be installed next week. Fingers crossed the quilt room is taken apart/ moved/ moved back/ and reassembled without further complications. Sigh.

Enjoy every stitch!


  1. so sweet and so nicely done! good luck with the basement. pretty soon you'll have new carpet smell - better than water

  2. Love your pin cushion - especially that it is reversible! Good luck on the basement - you are getting closer!

  3. Very sweet little pin cushion! Glad that your basement is being put back together. Deep breaths!!

  4. Oooh, what a cuties!! I've always loved cathedral windows, but never attemted it myself. I often heared it's no difficult, but it surely looks like it is! Love it!
    Just hold on for another week and than it's full steam ahead in the fresh sewingroom again. Have a good weekend!

  5. Beautiful! Not sure I could do a whole quilt either
