Hexagon Pincushion

I promised to publish the instructions for my hexagon pincushion pattern and they are now available in my Craftsy pattern store. You will find them here.

The pincushion is made with 1 1/4" hexagons and it finishes at about 3 1/2" across (from point to point).

Do you see the snail in the upper right corner? What do you think he is doing? I think he is trying to hide from Grandma because if she finds him he is a goner! Remember my quilt There's a Snail in Grandma's Flower Garden?

Here's the poor little guy hiding in the leaves and berries! If I'm in her garden and find a snail I'll pick him up and put him somewhere where she won't find him! Run snail, run!

That's it for today. I hope you enjoy my pattern and don't forget that some of the quilt patterns which are currently free will have a nominal fee attached to them starting in September so be sure to download them while they are available at no charge!

Until I post again, go save a snail!

    I gladly pay for your patterns, you make such wonderful work and deserve it.

  2. Karen you make me laugh, I see snails and they learn how to fly cause I toss them out of the yard but it is a soft landing on grass somewhere else. I don't step on them though. Great work love your detail and I see this is one of your hand quilting ones.
