Liberty Tana Lawn Pincushions

It's been a Pincushion kind of week!  I have made a a total of eleven pincushions this week, and ironically have been treated like a pincushion myself this week with tests, appointments, procedures and infusions.  Really, I would rather be sewing ...


These Log Cabin Liberty Tana Lawn Pincushions measure just 6 inches x 6 inches and are from the book Liberty Love: 25 Projects to Quilt & Sew Featuring Liberty of London Fabrics by Alexia Marcelle Abegg. (see my book review here).


Feeling inspired to keep going with the pincushion theme I made another six simple patchwork pincushions, again using Liberty Tana Lawn - cutting and sewing 200+ individual 1.5 inch squares.  A batch of pincushions is easy and fun to whip up and they make a great gift for quilting/sewing friends (and with only 66 days till Christmas now is a good time to get started).
All of the pincushions offered for sale have already been sold.  I know, that's good news for me, but disappointing if you were looking to purchase.  I hope to make a few more pincushions by the end of November and they will then be listed in my Etsy Store.


Well, I am grateful to be back on my feet and look forward to being more (sewing) productive next week.

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  15. very pretty pin cushions,Liberty lawn is in a class of its own such lovely fabric but such tiny squares they must be very fiddly to do.

  20. How precious are these! My husband has just finished that infusion business (we hope) and it is no fun at all for the patient. Isn't it nice to have something small and beautiful to work on when you are under-the-weather? Sending you prayers for improved health and blessings.

  26. I'm not sure that there is anything a person could do with Liberty Lawn that would turn out badly. It's soooo lovely. And everything you do is so wonderful to start that doing it with Liberty just makes your projects gorgeous and yummy.
    I'm sorry to hear that you have not been well. Somehow I must have missed the post where you shared that with us. I do hope that you are feeling better very soon.
