Quilt With Us

When I was choosing projects for my Gifty Galore , I saw the Flower Power Pincushion pattern from Sew Simple Patterns. Since I had already made several teacup pincushions, it was my time to branch out and make a daisy flower pot pincushion.

Looking to my scrap box, I found a bright tulip print from the Folk Heart collection for the soft rounded petals, a cheery yellow for center and, for the leaves, a lively green from Montecito. My daisy is planted in a small clay pot that makes it heavy enough to stay where it is placed.
As the instructions say, "a pincushion that will brighten up any sewing room. “Cut a few shapes, stitch a few stitches and with a little nip and tuck you’ll have yourself an adorable pincushion." It was that quick and easy. I made mine in less than an afternoon. That’s my idea for a great gift.

I really enjoyed your pattern!  I still have the pincushion on my desk, just to look at the cheery flower pot.

OMGosh!!!!  THANK YOU....I recognize that pattern.  haha   Love your fabrics and the little lady bug.  Would you believe me if I said that I have 8 in my sewing room.  One at my machine, 2 at my cutting table(one at each end cuz I'm too lazy to stretch to reach it each time I need a pin), 2 by my design wall  and 3 in my window sill, just because I can. Thanks again.  OH, this too will fit into a tea cup, mug or decorative container.
