Little Finish

It may be a little finish, but I'm rather proud of this one.  



We had a Secret Santa - Christmas in July swap at Perth Modern Quilt Guild and my partner said they wanted a pin cushion.  

So my teeny, tiny piecing experiment became quite useful!



Now don't faint, but I actually used *cough* SCRAPS *cough* to make this ... those that know me here at SewGiving will know of my chronic allergic reaction caused by keeping scraps ... but this little project could be bringing me around.



All the little geese are made from the trimmings of joining binding strips.  The grey Aneela Hoey is leftover from making bee blocks .... the AH Posy strip fabric is left over from making this diary cover ... the Moda ribbon (??) is off a jelly roll bundle, and the grey linen fabric?  Yup! That's my old maternity pants making another appearance!  So, honourable members of the scraps society, are you proud of me?


Karma repaid immediately when I received my Secret Santa gift from the lovely Gina of @happygolizzie on Instagram.  Just look at this Gorgeous zipper pouch and scissor case to keep my Farmer's Wife Blocks safe in when I'm out and about.

Life's great in 'Little Finish' Town!


Pin Cushion Stats:

Size = 4"x4"
Fabric = See my proud proclamation of scrap useage
Stuffing = Poly fibre from Spotlight
Flying Geese Pattern = "Juisey Goosey" by Jeli Quilts
I found this ladder stitch tutorial really handy too!

  3. Microscopic! And I thought Dear Jane blocks were small.
    Welcome to the scrappy dark side. One day you will have to collect and display all the projects those maternity pants helped make.
    Still in love with flying geese, eh?

  6. I just had to pick myself up from the floor. And then I cleaned my glasses. Then I checked that the glass beside me is water and not wine. Scraps? So proud. And look at the story those scraps tell. It looks great xx
