I found this cute little heart shaped pincushion on the Moda Bakeshop (Moda Love Pincushion)...and decided I needed to make one.  It was really easy.  I used 1 triangle piece of fabric for the back and pieced the front triangle piece of fabric with diagonal strips. Their instructions have you making 2 at a time.  One for you and one for a friend!   Sewed it RST leaving a small opening to turn.  Stuffed with plastic pellets and batting.  Sewed the 2 ends together and tied a strip around it to make tails.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  (Don't tell Vreni at OopsLah but I added it to her giveaway winnings.  Hope she likes it!)

I've finished another quilt to give to a nice young man who lives across the street.  I'm giving it to him tomorrow so I'll post pictures then.

Happy Quilting!                   Lynda

Oh how cute is that pin cushion. And how lovely that one is coming my way! Thanks so much; you are so kind. And did you know that I collect pin cushions? Mostly made by friends from around the world. It will be a lovely addition and it will always remind me of you.

So stinkin' cute...I must make one for my friend before we go to lunch on Monday!

How adorable! Plastic pellets seems like a much better choice than the crunched walnuts that someone uses. Not great for people with nut allergies and they may not even realize it's in there.

Yes these are real cuties. I have one (or two) on my "to do" list. Nice job on yours! :)
