Mother’s Day Gifts for Quilters: Pincushions

A while back, Carrie Nelson came to visit a local quilt shop and I picked up her book on pincushions.

After that, I was inspired to use my braid scraps to make this pincushion.

I used leftover bits of fabric to make this pincushion.

I pieced this little block and turned it into a pincushion.

Pincushions are a fun small project to make a quilter and they come in handy. I have one on my cutting table, one on my sewing table, one on my ironing board… 

You could make a new pincushion and give her some new pins to go with it. I don’t know about you, but my pins seem to slowly disappear over time.

Where do the pins go?????

Those are 3 quick and easy ideas for a Mother’s Day gift for a quilter.
