We did something a little different in class at Sewn and Quilted a couple of weeks ago. Some of the girls had expressed an interest in making a vintage-style pin cushion, so I did some exploring/tinkering and and came up with several different versions to show the students what they could make (containers from op-shops and plates from the throw out section at Spotlight – serendipitous find as I only went in to buy toy fill!)So in the Morning class…..
Carole made this oneLinda this onefrom Suefrom Leanneand from LynSue had also finished her “Sugar Plum” top and brought it along to showand with the left overs she’s made this fabulous backingCarylin made and stitched on a label for the baby quilt that’s now winging its way to Germanyand Marilyn is stitching up the last of her “Sweet Sunday” blocks
The vintage-style pin cushion fun continued into the afternoon class
Cheryl made this oneand enjoyed it so much she decorated the edge then made two moreFrances made this oneThis is Tineke’s in a tiny egg cupthese from Helenand Helen found the perfect button at home for the one on the rightthis from Janeand the other Lyn was making a felt one from this kitin the afternoon Linda continued on with “Bessie Creek Road” (new pin cushion in use!)Sue had a lesson in fussy cutting hexiesand Tineke started stitching down her vine (with the help of her new pin cushion!)You may have noticed some decorative pins; Sue brought some in that she’d made (which we used to stage some of the pics), but Cheryl brought in the “makings” for the pins and several of us had great fun creating new pins (me included!). At the end of the afternoon we had a group shot!Lots of fun!
This class is held at Sewn and Quilted, Blackburn
If you’re interested, I watched this YouTube by Debbie Shore then tweaked it to suit.
