Today is my stop on the Good Neighbors Pincushion Party! Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts designed a new line of fabric with Connecting Threads. It’s full of fun bright prints! The prints work wonderfully together but also are great stash builders for patchwork. They’re exactly what you’d expect from Amanda Jean’s scrappy style. She has a fabulous blog that you should check out if you haven’t already! Amanda Jean is also one of the most genuinely nice people I’ve ever met:)
Connecting Threads was kind enough to send out a charm pack to make the pinnie. I decided to use my Cube Pinnie Tutorial and make a scrappy patchwork version. I cut a bunch of 1 1/2″ squares and divided them by value.
I added SF101 to the back to make it a bit more sturdy. It was a bit more challenging to sew the cube together, but I think it was worth it.
Here’s my little pincushion! I think it turned out pretty cute. And how fun are those fabrics?!
The fabrics are perfect for scrappy!
I used Faux Burlap in Charcoal from Connecting Threads for behind the pocket.
Now it’s time for the GIVEAWAY! Connecting Threads will send a charm pack to one lucky winner. All you have to do is comment below with your favorite color! This giveaway is open to US and Canadian addresses only. (Sorry to the International folk!) Mack the Chihuahua will choose a winner on Wednesday, September 16 at 10 pm est.
