Kona Blog hop and giveaway


wakeuptokona
Time to Wake up with Kona!
I hope I didn’t mis-interpret this theme…
Anyways, I was looking thru my stash and found some leftover scraps of Kona Solids from when I did the Baja Sunset quilt for McCall’s last year
Baha-Sunset flat 600px
You may have seen my posts before about these adorable purse pin cushions!
They are made in the hoop on my embroidery machine (except to sew the pieces together at the end) but the appliqued main part of the purse and sides and flap are in the hoop, it’s a LOT of fun!
Here’s the pattern for sale at embroidershoppe
Here’s the one I made for this hop! TADA!!
2014-01-06 005
and front and back pics
I stuffed it with crushed walnut shells, so it’s quite heavy but stands great on it’s own.
2014-01-06 0042014-01-06 003
Would you like to have this pincushion???
AND a charm pack bundle from Timeless Treasures
(sorry, it’s not KONA but the closest thing I had to solids and it was donated my TT fabrics for me to give away any time, the pack is ADORABLE!)
2014-01-06 006
LEAVE a comment below, telling me how many (approx.) pin cushions you have and which one is your favorite! – one comment
(Make sure there’s a way to reach you, I get SO many emails from NO REPLY bloggers)

US ONLY! sorry- the pin cushion is just too heavy to easily send by international mail.

I’ll pick a winner on the 17th some time, so get your comments in on the 16th or before Smile

Have a look at the other great bloggers today.
And Thanks to all the ladies who always do a great job planning these hops!

I love your little purses - I have probably 20 pincushions now and my favorite is a wonderful Kitty that I can't bare to put pins in.

Kristen King said...

I'm looking at six pincushions right now and I know have at least twice that many more. :) Lovely job on your project!

desertskyquilts said...

That is the cutest pincushion! I probably have at least 30 in my collection - a shelf in a corner cabinet. One of my secret Santa people this year sent me two that I love, but one in particular looks like a woman's hat from the 1800s, embellished with sparklies! Thanks for the giveaway!

Scrapatches said...

Your pincushion is sew cute. A pincushion with handle ... what a great idea. Is "too many to count" an acceptable answer for how many pincushions I have? How about "always room for one more" ... ;) I have them for use in different places in my house so there is always one handy. I use one for awhile and then another one calls my name and I use that one awhile. Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

Gmama Jane said...

Colors are nice and really POP!! I'm a pincushion collector...never can have too many pincushions

Christine S said...

I only have 2! One is magnetic so it hardly counts :) The other is from my first quilting friend!

Theresa said...

Cute pincushion.

Judy B said...

What an adorable pincushion! I am surprised that Sonja isn't using it as a purse, lol! I have maybe 6 to 8 but will be making more. Thank you for sharing.

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

Your purse pincushion is just way too cute Bea!!! I have six pincushions and my favorite is a repurposed vintage eggcup that I purchased (I don't use it…I just enjoy looking at it lol!!!) Thanks for sharing :)

Kylie Lloyd said...

I only have 4 pincushions. My favorite is one made from an antique teacup and saucer

Karen Ackva said...

Hi Bea! Your pincushion is adorable. It is hard to see just how small it is without a reference point. I only have two pin cushions. One I usually leave on my wrist and one I made for a Moda Bake Shop pattern just last fall. I don't except any prizes since I live in Germany! Keep up the good work! Enjoy the Carolina Blue Sky! I miss it terribly! ;-)

charlotte said...

I love your sweet little purse pin cushion. How clever. My most used pin cushion is my magnetic one I have had for over 20 years. I have several others I made for a blog hop last year, the favorite of those is my tiny kitchen aid mixer in orange. Thank you so much for showing your talents here today.

Jeanie said...

Cute little pin cushion...very fashionable! My favorite PC is a tiny, felt one that I keep in my hand sewing box. Thanks for sharing!

Mdm Samm said...

a kona pin keeper….and a purse to boot…when it comes to pin keepers, what is too many..
cute cute cute

gtcoursey said...

Love you pincushion idea. Sew cute!!! I only have about 6 or so pincushions, but when I see one I just have to have I get it. Thanks for the give-a-way.

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

Very cute :) I only have three pincusions; my favorite is one I made to fite in a pink depression candy dish!

Britt-Inger said...

Your pincushion is so adorable in lovely colors. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

Elizabeth Coughlin said...

Adorable pincushions!

JoyceLM said...

Cute pincushion. I have 3 pincushions & my favorite one is shaped like a boot. Thanks.

Lisa Marie said...

My favorite pincushion is one of the few I've made and is shaped like a flower. Not nearly as cute as yours or as others I've seen online. I don't make a lot of little things like that because I find them fiddly and sometimes frustrating. Thanks for the chance to own a really cute one!

Nana B said...

Soooo cute!! I only have four pincushions but me fav is the one that attaches to a scap/trash sack.

PK Sews said...

The sunset quilt is awesome! And the little purses are so cute. I have three pincushions and my favorite is a duck=shaped one, just because it is so cute. Thanks for sharing!

DebraKay Neiman said...

Just started my pin cushion collection. Made a Victorian boot and bought the sewing machine, besides the old tomato. Your little purse is adorable. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Gene Black said...

I have about 8 pincushions that I can count without taking the sewing area apart. My favorite is a simple one that is made from Alpaca wool. It was given to me by the person who raised the alpacas, dyed the wool and made the pincushion. How excellent is that?

StitchinByTheLake said...

What a cute pincushion! Blessings, Marlene

Marla's Crafts said...

Pin cushions are new to me. I just made a few last year and not sure why I never used one before. I made them for my friends the year before for Christmas and then make two different patterns after that. I love my big owl one that I did for a bird hop. Thanks for showing your wonderful work and having a great give away.

Dorian said...

Thats a cute little pin cusion Bea! And I love your Baja sunset quilt, just gorgeous!

Linda said...

Adorable!

Linda said...

Sorry, I didn't answer your question. Since mine were all lost in the fire, I am starting over. I have about 4 pin cushions that people have sent me!

Lorna McMahon said...

Sew Cute!

Wendi said...

Sadly I only have two. One store bought and one I made. I like the one I made because it fits right at the base of machine where I toss the pins

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Wonderful projects....love your colors., I have about 5 pin cushions. I like the fried egg I made for the hop last year the best...just cute!

Sherry Von Fumetti said...

Clever idea for a pincushion! I have three...an 'antique' tomato, a finger cushion and an elephant (was actually a tree ornament that I repurposed). The elephant is my favorite because it was a 3rd world project and it's cute. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Quiltsmiles said...

PersimonDreams said...

I started a pincushion collection for my mother-in-law and of course i just had to start one for myself at the time. I would say I have about 12 so far...each birthday/holiday I get another! Thanks for the chance!

Agnes B. Bullock said...

The only pin cushion that I have is the traditional tOmato and strawberry one!

Sandra said...

About 10 pincushions reside in my sewing room. My favorite is a small chicken that was given to me by a retreat buddy. Your little purse pincushion is cute and would enjoy keeping company with my other pincushions.

Amy, a redeemed sheep said...

What a darling pin cushion!!

Needled Mom said...

That looks so cute in the solids. I have about a dozen pincushion - some just for decoration, but my favorite is my old red tomato.

sew.darn.quilt said...

Very Cute Pincushion!

suemac said...

I have five pincushions. My favorite has pinwheels.

Brandy Pettit said...

I am so proud of myself, I have 3 pincushions now! hahahah! My favorite is one that looks like a football in the grass, it's a hemisphere shape, and light, so easy to carry back and forth from the living room to the hobby room. Thank you for sharing your projects!

Judy Cooper Textile Images said...

The pincushions are sew nice. My collection, to date, is on Pinterest! I have a few I'd like to try. My daughter lives in the USA so mailing out is not an issue for this Canadian!

Lou said...

I have about 10 pincushions and my fav is made out of an old jello mold with chenille fabric as the topper. It was also a gift from a good friend so I love it!!!

pinsandneedles said...

Gotta love pincushions! So cute the little purse! I have quite a collection...maybe 20 or so. My favorite is the wee little owl I made for the Pin It Blog Hop! Thanks!

TheaM said...

wow... I love purses and pincushions. as to how many pincushions I have? including the ones that fit over fingers and wrist.. at least 26. some of these are old tomato pinnies that I keep in a basket and don't really use. my very most Fave pinnie is a felted wool ball that sits in a pretty blue glass dish. I also have several dozen 'pumpkin pinnies' left from a batch that I made for a boutique.

Heather said...

I participated in your swap the year before last, so I think that pushed me up to about 7 or 8. I only had the one workhorse before that swap. I love that little bag you made, super cute!

Cecilia said...

Your purse pincushion is very cute. I only have about 4 pincushions and my favorite is one made like a log cabin block. Thank you for the chance to win.

MooseStashQuilting said...

Those little purses are just adorable. The Baja Sunset quilt is beautiful!

Rose Best said...

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Now that is just darling! Also love your quilt.

giddy99 said...

I have about 6, and my favorites are the ring pincushions. So convenient, especially when on a plane or in a waiting area!

Lori said...

I always love your projects. I have one pink magnetic pin cushion. Some day I would love to have a homemade one. LOL when time allows. Thanks for a chance.

JanesQuilting said...

Your bags are beautiful! I am not one to use homemade purses but these are adorable. Aren't Kona fabrics cool to work with?

Beth Strand said...

I have about 10 pincushions, and my favorite is a little tea pot pincushion that the lid lifts and gives you a little hidey-hole for buttons, etc. Thanks for hosting! pbstrand@msn.com

Kathy H said...

Such a cute purse pin cushion. i have about 8 pin cushions and my favorite is a donut with icing that a friend made me.

Denise :) said...

I love this!! Great job with it, too! I have dozens of pin cushions ... but honestly, my favorites are the magnetic ones ... but I use 'em all!! :)

cobcottagecraft said...

I have only one pincushion. It's made of a mason jar lid, some stuffing and blue velvet. I'm quite fond of it but perhaps it would like a friend..
t_ktl at yahoo.com

Crickets Corner said...

I only have one pincushion but have a ton of them pinned on Pinterest. Does that count? lol Love your little purse, it's one I haven't seen before and it's just so cute.

Susan said...

I have 3 pincushions. One is actually a part of my sewing box--it is attached to the inside top of the lid. My second one is a crocheted pincushion my grandmother made my mom which she passed on to me. It is stuffed with cotton. My third pincushion is the standard tomato with the attached strawberry. My favorite is the crocheted one for sentimental reasons. The one I use the most is the tomato.

I love your cute purse pincushion. I have never had one or seen one filled with crushed walnuts, although I have heard about them.

Leslie said...

I have about 7 pincushions. My favorite is one made from felted wool in the shape on an apple. One reason I love it is that a dear friend gave it to me.

barbara woods said...

i have 3 that i made and my favorite is one that my grand daughter made me a few years ago, thanks hugs

Cut pincushion! What a creative idea!

I have 4 pin cushions and probably my favorite one is one that I made using a small flower pot with red lips all of over it. It really comes in handy!

ritainalaska said...

what a cute pincushion-I like that purse strap! I've seven ... some I've made and some were gifts; I use them all!

Farm Quilter said...

I have about 10 pin cushions. My favorite was made with a spoon with the cushion part on the bowl of the spoon! Thank you for the great giveaway!!

Sharmond said...

I don't have many pincushions. I have two of the tomato pincushions that I use the most. But my son, when he was little, made me a pincushion out of two squares of fabric, red and blue. That pincushion is special.

Shauna said...

I probably have 5 or 6 pin cushions, but my favorite is my magnetic one, because I just have to get the pins in the vicinity and it grabs them.

Createology said...

Your pincushion purses are always a joy and this one in Kona solids is lovely. How sweet of you to share it with someone. Thank you for hopping...

madebymeinred said...

The pin cushions are sew cute! The quilt is stunning.

vicki said...

I only have two pincushions so far. That one is so cute! Thanks for sharing it and for the great giveaway. I would love to give it a good home;) vickise at gmail dot com

Bobbie said...

I really don't have a lot of pincushions- maybe 4? I have a Mary Englebreit Chair that I love and a ladybug pin cushion/scrap bag
your little purse is adorable

LJ said...

Great pincushions! I like embroidershoppe and the in-the-hoop projects are sew fun. I must get myself some Kona solids - I'm loving all the projects on this hop.

LittleHouseontheDairy said...

Only 1. I need to start collecting

Heather H. Karr said...

Cute :) I don't use pincushions, really. I have magnets. My family thinks this is a better method for keeping sharp things out of the carpet.

Just Quilt It said...

I love your sunset quilt--beautiful, and the purse pin cushion is darling. I have about 5 or 6 pin cushions, and I love all of the different ones you can make. This one is so cute! My favorite is a clock one I made for a blog hop. It is attached to my sewing machine, so I always have pins handy and a place to put them. Thanks for having a great give-away!

I am a purse lover and that pin cushion is just lovely. I have about 5 or 6 pin cushion and the one I use the most is a flower cushion made by one of my quilt friends.

Cindy said...

Your purse pinnie is adorable. I don't have many pincushions but love the ones I do have. My favorite is a pieced apple that my co-worker made for my birthday.

CeLynn said...

Adorable! I have 7 or 8, hardly any compared to some of the other ladies, lol. My favorite is the one that belonged to my mother. :)

maggie said...

I love the purse pincushion. I hate to admit how many I have, but can I just say more than 50, but less than 100...lol
My favorite is one of the "vintage & antique" ones and it is a bird clamp with a pincushion on it.

cheers
maggie

VickiT said...

I just love the little purses you have been making. Where is that adorable daughter of yours with her purse collection? She always looks like she's having a blast collecting them from you.

I am boring in my sewing room. I only have one pincushion and that one I don't even like. LOL

Teri said...

OMGosh...I think I have at least 15 pincushions....they are displayed all over the house....I think my favorite is the one my son in law brought me back from Japan.....I didn't even ask for it he just thought I would like it.....what a great giveaway....thanks

Wendy said...

I love it!I have a little over 100 of them...my favorite being one made from a ball canning jar...

Jan Baker said...

I only have three and love the old one I picked up at a yard sale. I have been wanting to try to make one but haven't attempted it yet.

Fran said...

I have been looking at your little purses for some time, and would love to make one. I have one of the very common place tomatoes, and one that is a treasure, given to me by my mother. It is in the shape of a beetle, with hand stitches outlining the wings and the head and ceramic head pins for the markings on the wings. I must ask her about the origins of this piece while I still have the chance, as my mother will be 90 next month!

Paula Hughes said...

I only have two, but my favorite is a pear!

Sewgirl said...

I have about a dozen pin cushions, and some I have made, some have been gifted to me, but my favorite is a simple square with floral fabric, tied like a package with a ribbon, and button in the center where the bow would be. It's not too big, and the pins go in it like butter!

Kathy Boice said...

I have about 6 pin cushions. I guess my favorite is my Fons and Porter pin cushion. midwayfarms@hughes.net

Peggy S said...

So many of us collect pin cushions. Well, I shouldn't be surprised. I have at least 15, probably more. Of course I love the purse, it's adorable. I have 2 favorites...a giganto pin cushion that's pink and another made with wool appliques.

Lee said...

What a cute pincushion! I have three and I love my bird one that my daughter made me! thanks!

nicolesender said...

Love your pincushion! I have 2 pincushions that I use. My favorite was my mother's; it is a larger one and sits steady.

M-R Charbonneau said...

Such a cute idea for a pincushion! Love it!

Michele said...

I love your little purses and honestly the only pin cushions that I have are the 2 you sent to me (thank you again) and two that were purchased early on. Since I already have one of your adorable little purses, if my name is picked please pick again and send it to someone else.

Robin said...

Great job Bea! I love your little purse pinnies. especially mine!!!

sueH said...

your email is the first one I look for each morning....watching Sonja grow is such a joy

Carla said...

Very cute pincushion and oh so colorful. Solids are so fun to work with. Nice!

Connie said...

What a neat pin cushion Bea!! I actually only have a couple magnetic ones.

Cathy's Chatter said...

Sadly, I have NO pincushions - just a couple of containers I throw mine in. That means I get poked an awful lot! I love your project! Adorable!!

Suze said...

The quilt is beautiful. I think you nailed the intent of the hop. The pincushions are adorable. I can only think of two pin cushions that I have. I've had it since I was a preteen when my great aunt outfitted a sewing basket for me, so I've had it fifty years. And, I received the other one as a thank you when with my first order from an online quilt shop. I love pin cushions and would even like to try by hand at making a couple. Thank you for participating and the beautiful work. Also, you are very generous with your giveaway - thanks!

Karen said...

I probably have 10-15 pincushions. Most of them are very utilitarian. I do have a few that I made from batiks that are a little more flashy. My favorite though is my magnetic one. I actually have two of them but #1 disappeared in my house over 2 years ago! How does that happen??

Thearica said...

oh my! I haven't counted my pincushions in a good while but I know there is close to a dozen... and my apple that I use in the longarm studio is my favorite!

Your quilt for the magazine is totally hot!

Sylvia Anderson said...

What a darling pincushion!
I have about 4 of them, 2 of which I made and perform the double duty of being a scrap and misc. catcher. They're not as cute as yours, but serve the purpose.
lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

Margaret said...

I know I have about 8 pincushions and I would love to have this one. My favorite one is a little antique one that I need to recover. It is on a little stand and holds 8 antique spools of thread.

Nancy said...

I like Kona solids. Your pincushion is very nice. The in the hoop construction interests me. I have 6 or 7 pincushions. My favorite is the one my sister bought in England for me.

apple blossom said...

I have about four right now. and my fav. is a tea cup one.

However, I'm in the process of making another one that will probably turn into my fav.

ABreading4fun [at] gmail [dot] com

WhoMom said...

Great pincushion and really love your Baja Sunrise quilt. Wonderful colors with Kona.

Ellee said...

I only have one pincushion, a tomato one. I guess I'm out of the loop when it comes to collecting pincushions. Yours is sure precious! -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Reb Thack said...

I have 3 - it is sad. I know. The one I use the most is a magnetic one. I think I need more. No, I KNOW I need more!

Kris said...

I have at least 5, but have plans for more. My favorite is a lamb. Your little purse is very cute, would love to try to make one.

Melissa @ Missouri Mel said...

I don't have any fun pincushions but I have a number of the plain old store bought tomatoes. I've been wanting to make a fun one, though.

That pincushion is adorable, Bea! So clever. I probably have about 6 or 7 pincushions. My favorite is a colorful felted wool one that I use all the time. (I could give you a U.S. mailing address.)

Michelle said...

I have three pincushions. I love the smallest one a friend gave me for Christmas a few years ago.

JessicaK said...

I have 2 pincushions, a generic store bought "tomato" and my favorite - a pincushion strawberry that my aunt (who quilts and sews) made for me for Christmas. (jessicakerr1 (at) yahoo (dot) com.

kris said...

I have one pincushion that a friend made for me in a gift exchange and I love it!

Emily C said...

Love the cute purse. I only have 3 pincushions. My favorite is a large round pincushion that I bought from a yard sale. When I got it home I discovered that someone had pushed a large number of needles into the cushion. That was a delightful surprise! I ended up with at least 2 dozen needles.

JLVerde said...

I only have ONE pin cushion. Shocking, I know. Time to remedy that situation.

Jusmom1 said...

I have three pin cushions. My favorite is an animal holding a pot of flowers ( the pins). Thanks for the chance to win.

WhoMom said...

I have two pincushions. My favorite is one by grandfather brought back from a fishing trip to Alaska. He dies before I was born, but this cushion has an eagle on the top for the needles.

Jansie said...

I only have two. :( But my favorite is one that my 8 y.o. niece made me for Christmas one year.

Mom C said...

For years I used a magnetic pin holder. Then a DIL gave me a thread catcher with pin cushion. Then I started piecing and quilting and now I don't see a pincushion I don't like. But I only have 5 or 6. With my grand daughters sewing more, they seem to walk off. I'm also losing pins! Thanks.

Connie Cain said...

Love ,love, love your pin cushion! I use the old tomato and strawberry, lol. :)

charlotte l said...

I have 3 pin cushions. 2 plain one and a teacup one I made myself. Id love to add another. Thanks

Janet said...

I think I have about 18 different pincushions! M favorite is one I used to death years ago that was a small dresden square that I sewed by hand.

Vivian said...

I only have one tomato pin cushion and I need an additional one for my sewing room. I keep saying i am going to make one and I NEVER DO! Yours would be perfect.

Jacklynn said...

Believe it or not - I only have one pin cushion - it's part of an organizer that has a hanging bag for scraps and thread. It's a free pattern from Elizabeth Hartman, I found it on her blog. Thanks for the give away! jacklynnsteven at netzero dot com

Lisa said...

I have 7 now my favorite is a flower with petals I received from a swap last year. I would love to add your little beauty to my collection!

Mrs Quinn said...

I have 2: one cheaply tomato one and another my sister gave me that is just a square pillow. Lots of cute ones out there though and especially yours in particular!

Jessica said...

I actually don't have any. I was given a box of pins and it has a snap lid. That is what I have always used. I would love a cute pin cushion though.

Debbie said...

I only have one. I would love to win the adorable pincushion. Thanks

jan said...

Hi bea,
Sorry i am late visiting. I love your purse pin cushion. Very cute!
xo jan

Judy1522 said...

Your pin cushion is adorable! I have only 2 pincushions and one of them I did make. It is a little embroidered pillow with tubing and lace sewn into the edge. It also has a fabric tape measure sewn into the seam with a little pair of folding scissors attached by a loop at the end of the tape. I love this pin cushion because I can loop it around my neck and keep everything handy when I am doing hand sewing.

Samantha Butrim said...

Love the purse pin cushion. I only havea few.

Betsy said...

Bea I have 8 and my favorite is a civil war square one.

Lynne Tilley said...

I have 3-4 pin cushions, but my favorite is my very first one, a wrist pincushion I started with in junior high home-ec. I had to replace the cloth on it once, it's at least 40 years old. But it still clips to my arm and I love it. I remember in junior hi I'd leave home-ec with it still on my arm and get teased about my funny "bracelet".

I actually don't have one... I live with my mother-in-law and have just been using her stuff when I sew! What a nice mother-in-law, right? I'm lucky :)

I have 2 pincushions - my favorite being one sent to me by a fellow blogger! It's made from hexies and I like it. :)

Surprisingly,that is the one thing I do not have! I use a Dritz magnetic bowl. I do want to make a "finger" pin cushion though, if that counts ;-)

I probably have 15 pin cushions, some I have collected, some I have made and my favorite is the rocking chair pin cushion that belonged to my grandmother Kate. I have had it since I was a little girl and I am now 61.
