There are two but they are very different. One is large and round, the other is rectangular, but both were made from scraps. The fabric for the round cushion is the last of this cute, paper umbrellas print. To break up the print and add some drama, I sewed in some skinny strips of coordinating scraps; then quilted it in random diagonal lines. It has a modern, funky feel.
I left the backing fabric plain and unquilted so that it can be used that way if the eventual recipient prefers.
The second pincushion is just a simple I-sewed-some-scraps-together item. This one is quilted on the front and the back in a straight-line grid. Easy, fast, fill 'er up in no time!
And speaking of filling up, both have crushed walnut filler. It's my favorite goto filler, and I can't believe it, but the 10 lb. bag is almost empty.
There have to be more pincushions on the way, so I guess I'd better find another bag soon. What have you been working on lately?
