Giveaway Friday

You know from previous posts that I'm involved in the craftster ANOTHER Pin Cushion Swap Round 10. (But don't worry Stacy, this isn't a spoiler!)

The inspiration for today's giveaway is one of several rescued quilt blocks. Whenever I see lonely quilt blocks, I usually manage to give them a home in my sewing room, where they play with other lonely quilt blocks. This is a 'friendship star' block, about 4" finished, made with batik background and solid color fabric star. It's a very pretty little block on it's own, but it wanted to be a useful thing...so, with a little bit of backing fabric, some thread and polyfil, that lonely little block is now a pretty little pin cushion!

She's almost too pretty to poke! Wait, what's this? Oh my, what sharp little points you have my dear!

Want to win this pretty little pin cushion? Just leave a comment and on Sunday I'll use a random number generator to pick a lucky reader!

Be sure to enter the other drawings, and check back tomorrow for one more prize. The drawings will be on Sunday, and I'll post winners Sunday evening. Thanks for reading!

What a great idea on how to use quilt blocks in something other than a quilt.

What a clever use of a cute little block, I would love to give your pincushion a good home.

How cute! My mom would make Christmas ornaments out of those little quilt block pillow, add a ribbon and hang on the tree. It is amazing how tiny she can make a 6 pointed star.

(I don't have that type of patience!)
