I made these 3 cute biscornu pincushions!

One uses scraps from Connecting threads,

two uses scraps from Island Batik

and two use Accuquilt!

(a QUBE set and some flowers from the serendipity set)

If you’d like to get the book get it here

(a fellow Island Batik ambassador Connie K got her book before me and emailed me that OF COURSE I’d be in a pincushion book too, wonder WHY she thought that!? ha ha)

Annie’s is sponsoring an E-book of this book as a giveaway!

Just answer below how many pincushions you think you have!?

I have over 100 I’m sure or close to it

Nice pincushions. I only have three. The common red tomato, a chicken and one on my thread catcher.

That is so exciting! You must be on cloud nine! Congratulations! I only have 6 pincushions....guess I need more!

Martha said...

Congratulations!!! How awesome to have your work in a book. I love pincushions and have many around my sewing room!!!

You are quite the collector of pincushions. I collected thimbles in my younger years and haven't added to them in a century (ha ha).

They are pretty cute.

I didn't have a pincushion until I met you. I'm surprised to say this, but I now have 12 pincushions. I love your collection, but don't have plans to get 100. Although I can see how addicting they are and how easily it would be to get to such a collection. Glad to see you have some of your pincushions published in a book. I still think you need to become a curator for a pincushion exhibit in a quilt show. I bet Quilts, Inc would like such an exhibit at Houston!

I have few pincushions, mostly because I love to give them! I only have 4 or 5 at home... and one of them is a gift!

Sewgirl said...

I know I don't own as many as you, but I would guess around 10 or so! I have made several. They are fun, and always useful!

Pamela said...

I probably have around 10 or so. Most of them were gifts, but I've made a few as well.

I love your pincushions! I only have 3, and I’ve yet to make one for myself. I’ll get around to it this year. Thanks:)

I'm thinking that I have at least 40 pin cushions. Mine are scattered all over the house (especially my pin cushion thread catchers). Congrats on having some of your pin cushions in the book.

Melody said...

I have 5, 1 I won from Lisa Boni, it is a crazy quilt design, 2 I got in a swap, both crazy quilt design, a chicken and then the magnetic one I use for my day to day sewing.

Love Pin cushions and swoops!

Pauline G said...

Think I now have about 10 after joining in swops

Congrats Bea! I have that cute little red purse pin cushion that you made me!

I have 4 pincushions total and the fabric kit to make one. No it definitely is not surprising that you have three pincushions in a book as you have an amazing collection of them.

I have too many to count but really need more!
