Can you ever have too many pincushions??

Recently, two of the guilds I attend had pincushion exchanges.  Everyone should have a basketful of cuteness in their sewing room!  There are such adorable pincushion patterns out there!  Love the little Owl I made yesterday from an online "Tutowlrial" ←(click for link) by Moonstitches.  
SLC Modern Quilt Guild Pincushion Exchange - critters and bright graphic shapes.

Heber Valley Quilters Pin Cushion Exchange - delicious!

My Collection - how many chickens?
And now my personal stash of pincushions has grown since I took the photo...they keep multiplying somehow!

the little Owl (with a repaired beak)

Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow ←(click for link to tutorial) doubles as a pincushion.
I especially ♥ chickens (tutorial HERE), they're my peeps.
Another cutie - this one's for Fran.  Happy B-Day!
Quilters around the world are talking about their pincushions: QUILTER'S BOARD


  1. I love your pin cushions. I also have a nice collection of different ones and now want to add the owl to it.

  2. You can never have too many pincushions. :p The owl pincushion is just so adorable, it is definitely high on my "to make" list!

  3. I had my 4-H girls make the chicken pincushions when I was their leader in California. They all turned out really cute, but I really do love that little owl.

  4. Love the owl pincushion. I know your post was from over 7 years ago but can you tell me how the pincushion exchanges at your guild were run.


So happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you!
