Most Used Pincushion

Above is my most used pincushion. Not the fanciest, but certainly most used! It stays by my machine and goes with me on retreat! I know I've shared some of my others in the past so I won't bore you with more pics of those. Blueberry Lane is having a giveaway of an old pincushion book out of print for sharing your most used pincushion. Go visit!

And here are some Civil War blocks I got done this week! The top 2 are my favorites! And I even bought a cheap tablecloth to tape up on Adam's closet for a design wall finally! It is so fun to see the blocks all together! I have a lot of red and blue ones I decided. I'll have to fix that!

I love your civil war blocks and since I love blue and red so much I am happy that there are lots in those clours. Isnt it great being able to see them up on a wall, makes it very exciting.

Your blocks are gorgeous. They are soooo much fun. I haven't done the blocks for this week yet, maybe today.

I really like your orange stripe fabric - I have been eyeing that off in my local quilt store. Your black and red is also lovely - those triangles look very tricksy! Lily

Wow, Dawn, You did great job with all CW blocks. It's so fun see all together, what a sight! *S*
I love your pincushion. I used this pincushion when I attend a quilt class before and It was great. I might need to make one for me.

Oh excellent progress on the blocks Dawn. Love hoe yours turned out too! You actually had the rust "broth" fabric. I had the same but in a mauve color and decided not to use that. It's so cool when we have the same fabrics! I like how your Provisions blocksed turned out...do you realize we have to sew that top and bottom so that it ends up at just a 1/4"?!! Yikes these are getting small! Great job!
