Pincushions and En Provence progress...

Hi everyone, 

I joined a pincushion swap and it started in January. My first pincushion made it to Janne in Norway. I made her a scrappy log cabin pincushion and a scrappy needle keeper.  
Both of these were made with fabric in my crumb bin. Love it when I can use tiny pieces of fabric to make something useful. 

I received a pincushion from Tanja. It's super cute. Here it is. 
I love pincushions. I have a variety of them. I'm so excited to be able to add to my collection. 

I've also been working on my En Provence quilt designed by Bonnie K. Hunter. 

I have the 16 blocks done. 

Now, I'm working on the sashing blocks. I still have quite a bit of sewing to do on this quilt. There are a lot of pieces in this quilt. Lol! But that's what makes it so special. I'm using only stash fabric and have not purchased any fabric for this quilt. Love it!

I love pincushions too and yours look great (both the one you sent and the one you received). Your quilt is progressing very well - how cool that it is all from stash.

Cute pincushions! I love the purple one. And En Provence is coming along nicely. I know you will be happy when that one is done.

So many pretty projects here! The pincushions are adorable. The En Provence quilt is wonderful. It looks like it was a challenging one to piece - lots of small pieces!!

Lovely pincushions. Janne is my friend, and I know she will love these. I just got a pincushion from Tanja, too. So sweet.
