Pinwheel Pin Cushion
This is a little pin cushion that I made the other day (probably 2 weeks ago at this point). I got the pattern at my monthly quilt guild meeting. I thought it would be a fun little quick project. It was pretty quick to make, but it was a little more difficult than it looks. The center pinwheel is actually somewhat dimensional, as it is formed by layering a folded 2 inch square on top of another 2 inch square.
That creates a lot of bulk in that center seam. In fact, it was so difficult to sew through that I broke the needle on my sewing machine and had to sew the very center of the pin cushion top by hand. I think it turned out really cute though. I like the fabric and I love that color of blue.
