Friday Finish: Mini Log Cabin Pincushion

With scraps from my daughter's log cabin quilt, I sewed this cute mini log cabin block and turned it into a pincushion.  I love everything about pincushions: making, giving, using, displaying, AND receiving them!!

I trimmed some leftover strips to 1" wide; you can see what a difference that half an inch makes when you are working with 13 strips.

The back is super cute too!  I like to use a heavier weight fabric for my pincushion backs so I don't have to line them.  The stuffing is walnut shells.

Linking with Crazy Mom Quilts.  Hope y'all have a great weekend!


  1. So sweet Rene! I haven't made a pincushion for ages, but you are right- they are fun in every instance! Love the back too!

  2. the thing that says to please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting is very annoying when trying to look at your blog.

  3. I totally agree. Thanks for pointing it out. I am working on getting rid of it....

  4. Adorable!! It is amazing how much of a difference it makes!
