I was the lucky recipient of Hilde's pincushion in the Swap I took part recently. But's not all; she also included a box of Clover Patchwork Pins as well as a packet of paper hearts for paper piecing.
I love the "mushroom pincushion" with the little hidden compartment in the base. Perfect for small odds and ends (like the band-aid Hide put it in case of an emergency). She also put in a couple of cute buttons and a length of lovely ribbon. Thanks very much Hilde!
And this is the pincushion I made. It went all the way to Val in Brazil.
I hand pieced it using the English Paper Piecing technique then hand quilted it.
Thanks Hilde and Hilde for organizing this swap. I hope it wasn't the last time ;). If you would like to see more lovely creations go here.
