A Few Finishes With a POW!:)

Been working on a few sample items for the Shop. I wanted to show how many pincushions you could get from three pieces of the hand dyed wool we offer so I found a pattern (Buttons and Lace by the Sunflower Fields Pattern Co.) picked pink, gold and brown wool and got to work.
 A little wool felt, some perle cotton and a few buttons later I had six pincushions.  The flowerpot and five petal flower in the back were my own creations.  Love that heart tree!:) If I had cut a little more carefully I think I could have made a seventh one!
We needed a new mini to hang from the magnetic hanger at work so I played with some Collage by Carrie Bloomston for Windham Fabrics. Great colors and text prints!
Here is the POW! I was talking about...Quilt Girl, Super Hero and a Grunge background! Pattern from the book my pal Amy at Diary of a Quilter sent me...Sweet Celebrations.
Pow! Press! Wham! Rip! Bonk! Bind! Boom! Stitch! Zoom!
 Perfect combo don't you think?:)
I'll have some other finishes to share soon, until then here is a peek of the clock I'm making with the bitties I received this past May from the Bitty Block Bee.  There's a Clock Along going on at the Mini QT Swap inspired by these blocks...go check it out!:)


  1. Fab collection of samples for the shop, and 6 seems pretty efficient to me for the pincushions :o)

  2. Great samples for the shop. The pin cushions are fun!

  3. Phew! you have been busy. Love the pin cushions, the quilt is just so you and that mini is great. Now 'time' for you to finish your clock.

  4. Great work!! Your 7 looks amazing!!
