A 'Pinny' Kind of Day!

Today was all about pin cushions!

Pin cushions

I've been wanting to try out the Cathedral Windows pin cushion for a long time, ever since I started seeing them around blogland!  I used this tutorial.

Cathedral Windows Pin-cushions

Just like regular Cathedral Windows, they are fiddly to make, but I really like the colourful finish! And it's a great way to use up spare 2.5" squares!

Next was the snowball pin cushion!

Snowball pin cushion

This was a kit (available from Quilter's Quest), and again fiddly to make.  But I think the end results are so worth it!  Aren't the ear-muffs so cute!!

Not sure I would want to stick pins in Mr Snowman's head, but I'll leave that up to the recipient of this one!!
