Blog Hop: Good Neighbors Pincushion Party











{image from crazy mom quilts}


Welcome to the Good Neighbors Pincushion party, a blog hop for Amanda Jean Nyberg of {Crazy Mom Quilts}.  Did you know that Amanda's blog was the very first quilting blog I discovered way back to 2007?  I love reading her process of making quilts and so admire her using scraps to make quilts, pincushions, and bags. There are so many awesome ideas that she shares in her blog and tutorials on how to make quilts. Amanda shares great tips as well! I learned so much over the year from her! 

I am so honored to get invited to join this pincushion blog hop! It was a nervous racking to start with {I was visiting my family while the innovation arrived my inbox and was so afraid that I won't make it}! The charm pack was sitting in the mailbox when I returned. Oh, I played the fabric in colors and patterns for a few days before decided to go with the simple patchwork style. I want to show you how well these designs and color work together, so keep the simple patchwork style is what I was after.   I also love how well these colors represent in person! The fabric designs on each print is so charm and well though out! This fabric line is 100% in quilting weight and great for hand-quilting as well. 

So, I couldn't resist making just one when I started making. There are so many possibility for this fabric collection.  I added my signature hand-quilting to the pincushion and that added some hand touched texture to it! They really turned out so sweet! 

The fabric collection, {Good Neighbors} is excessively by {Connecting Thread} and I truly hope you enjoy this party! There are more pincushion party to visit...   { please scroll all the way down}

Sweet patchwork pincushions, Chase! I love how the simple design lets those fabrics shine and your hand stitching is the perfect compliment and finishing touch. I can see why you couldn't resist making more than one (and I'm so glad you made multiples! :o)
