Second time's a charm!

Yea! It worked this time. I think my partner will like this pinnie, so I'm excited that this one turned out better. Happy hump day everyone.

You did it!! I didn't offer advice yesterday,because I do the exact same thing with some of my triangle points! I'm off to the read the comments from yesterday to see what you did. It looks great! AND I love square pin cushions, so this one looks awesome!

Wow, it looks great! Of course, I love the linen in the design too. The hand-stitching is adorable.

So fantastic!! I have thought many times about making a pincushion and attempting handstitching on it. I don't know where to start on the handstitching though...what kind of needle, thread, stitch, etc. Do I sandwich like a quilt and then hand quilt, do I have to put it in a embroidery hoop??? Maybe one of your fabulous tutes is in order here!!

That looks so cute! And I love the fun pins. There are NO fun pins in the whole of the UK, I'm convinced.

Boo boos are just a part of the "joy of quilting". You recovered VERY nicely. I'm new to you - all those amazing hexies! Really enjoyed your video on attaching the rows. Thanks!
