When I went to Holland in December I showed Gerda some pictures of quilts and we started talking at Petra Prins. We were talking and I offered to trade some special scraps I had, which were just scraps and no problem at all. But she was so sweet and gave me this great tray with goodies, far beyond what I had imagined. I have been thinking what to do with the lovely things she gave me and used some of the fabrics for this pincushion. I am thinking about making a bag or something out of it as well.
I made this pincushion yesterday and it turned out really cute. It has the pincushion part.. 8 pockets for thread spools and then a thread catcher under. The pincushion pattern is from Kristel Salgarollo, the thread catcher is an other old design I had and just combined it.
I am still quilting my diamonds quilt. I hope that I finish it tomorrow and can put the binding on.
