What I thought was going to be a quick little hand-pieced project turned out to be far more fussy that I had anticipated. The pincushion top was hand pieced and hand quilted while watching TV in the evenings. I was almost ready to call it Finished on Saturday; however, I pushed it and actually finished it up at my Thursday night quilt guild meeting.
But, didn't it turn out cute? I found the pattern in one of the recent quilt magazines on Bags, Pillows and Pincushions. The designer is Penelope Tucker. I have been avoiding the increasingly popular English Paper Piecing hexagons. Not because I don't like them. More, that I am afraid of getting hooked on them. I keep seeing more and more uses for these hexagons, other that Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts. Perhaps I will tackle a few more "small" hexagon projects. Have a great weekend and
