Pin cushions

The first round of the pincushion swap I’m hosting is well under way.

I sent this to Wanda for February. It was a free block pattern from here

I knew Wanda liked hot pink, so I used a solid for the background and added a black flange (which was tricky for a pillow type of pincushion- lesson learned)

Then I received this pincushion from Carol for January, isn’t it fun and funky?

My two oldest kids have been reading the first book of the hunger games and thought this looked like a hat the people from the Capitol would wear!
