96 pages, That Patchwork Place, 2018, Paperback
Pretty. Petite. Playful. Pinnies! Inspired by a 30-day sewing challenge on Instagram, these patchwork pincushions stitch up pronto and are perpetually addicting—no quilter can make just one. And why would they when the pinnies are so easy to create? Simply sew, quilt, turn, and stuff! Best-selling author Carrie Nelson packs these pinnies with personality and shares adorable ways to use and display them as singles or in pleasing piles. Quilters will want to put a pin in the philosophy behind making Carrie’s delightful pincushions: to sew just for the joy of it. 40 pincushion projects (plus variations) are super-quick to sew and delightful to display. Techniques used are similar to quiltmaking techniques, so quilters will instantly be up to speed. Even beginners with basic sewing experience can whip up these pincushions in a flash.
