I have wanted a pin cushion for a while, but never seemed to get around to making one. Then at the quilt show, I found this nifty pattern – the Harlequin Star Pillow. The pattern has a pillow AND a pin cushion version. Of course, depending on the size of the squares, one could make this any size really.
Not being great at following patterns, I decided to give it a try. It was not difficult at all! It just looks difficult. This version uses 2.5″ squares. The final size is about 5″ around and 2″ tall. I am encouraged now to make a pillow version for the living room. What a conversation piece!
Interested in the pattern? You can get it here. I don’t get any commission on this : )
Happy sewing today!
