My Favorite Pin Cushion

In response to a challenge to show your favorite pin cushion - here is mine. It was a gift from a great friend, Darlene, and I just love it. It opens as you can see and I store my extra pins in there. I do like pin cushions and will include a picture of other ones that I have another time.

An update on my Christmas Beauty quilt - I started the clam shell quilting tonight and I think it looks pretty good. Took awhile to make a template for the pattern, but here are a couple of pictures of the little bit I got done. The chalk marking is still there on the quilt. Thanks for all your suggestions and encouragement. I know this is not a very fancy pattern, but then, I am not a very fancy person.

your pincushion is darling, but your quilt is breathtaking!

I think you picked a great pattern. I think the simplicity of the clamshells is perfect for such a complicated quilt pattern. I love this quilt!!!

Love the storage under the pincushion..would be great place to keep a thimble. That quilt is amazing. Also I love the picture of Felicia sitting on top of your sewing machine...very sweet! Nice to find you.

I love your quilting, and who cares if it isn't very complex. Your Top is and if you went for some very heavy and complex quilting it may take away from the beauty of the top.
