Freebie Friday: Pincushion

Happy Friday, Crafters!

Confession: I have been keeping my sewing needles in a Ziploc bag buried in my top drawer. Most—if not all—of you are shaking your heads at me and saying, “But needles are sharp and plastic bags are weak! It’s only a matter of time before the needles puncture the bag and fall out.” And you are correct, folks. That is exactly what happened. With numerous needles mixed in with my hair accessories I decided it was time to invest in a pincushion. But why buy when you can DIY?!

Today’s FREE PROJECT is a quilted pin cushion from Susan Briscoe’s 130 Mini Quilt Blocks. Along with the project’s instructions, we’ve included the pattern for a Cake Stand quilt block AND instructions on adding borders. 3 for 1—Freebie (Threebie?) Day has never looked this good!

130 Mini Quilt Blocks is perfect for today’s quilter looking to make small projects with widely-available fabric packs. This is an extensive collection of mini blocks designed to take advantage of the assortments 130 minilike Fat Quarters, Jelly Rolls, Cake Layers, and Charm Packs that quilters love. The blocks, made to be mixed and matched, showcase a range of styles including Amish, retro, stars, Japanese-inspired taupe blocks, Baltimore albums, contemporary Japanese prints, and American country classics—like log cabins and simple strip designs.

Each block comes with a full cutting list, assembly instructions, and construction diagram, plus each chapter features a small project. A comprehensive techniques section covers all the skills required. A useful finishing section, showing how to combine different block sizes, add borders, insert batting, and more guarantees a professional-looking result. 130 Mini Quilt Blocks shows quilters of all abilities how to get the most out of their fabric packs while creating their own unique small-scale projects.
