Happy Friday! It’s a Finish It Up Friday for me, and I wanted to share my finished Hexagon Pincushion. A small project really, but, hey, finished is finished!
Several months ago, one of my quilter friends went to Quilt Market and brought me back a small pack of English Paper Piecing shapes from Paper Pieces. She warned me they were addicting, but I took that as a challenge. I’ve now got hexies coming out my ears and more on the way!
I made the little purple flower out of scraps leftover from my very first quilt (which is still unfinished itself, but that’s a project for another Friday). I didn’t have a project to use it on though, so the hexagon flower got shoved in a drawer.
A few days ago, I pulled it back out. I needed a new pincushion and none of my other UFOs (unfinished objects) were close to the right size. I had no pattern, mind you, and worked on it exclusively while watching superhero action TV shows with lots of distracting explosions. Which might explain why it’s lopsided. I like it anyway. It’s purple, which for me is an instant “What’s not to love?”
I also learned a valuable lesson from this pincushion: Don’t sew distracted. You end up with things like this:
Linking this up to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks for stopping by.
