A FUN Pincushion Finish & Pattern Review!

Super-cute finish to share this week!
Large and sturdy, this fun pincushion is fully-lined and stuffed with walnut shells to keep pins and needles sharp! I combined vintage with retro fabrics to use with a white Kona background.

The pattern is a new design by Karen, who blogs at SugarFreeQuilts, available at her Etsy shop HERE. It comes with very detailed instructions, and a full-size 'map' to lay out your fabric pieces before piecing.
The double-layer backing used a technique new to me that was quite simple once I wrapped my brain around it.
I really ought to have switched to white thread for the binding though...

In other progress this week, I completed Step Two of the Christmas Table Topper QAL hosted by Carole of From My Carolina Home. Step Three was announced today, so hopefully I will get these pieced together over the weekend.
I am also looking forward to reading finishes shared at the Friday Linkups over the weekend!

Hope yours is a great one!
TGIFF is hosted this week at Anja Quilts!
