Susie Seckel, a member of my guild, has created a wonderful idea!
Susie shared "Making this quilt was the only way I could showcase all my pincushion designs at once."
For the background Susie used a wool Army blanket.
"Using this single piece of wool fabric eliminated seams" Susie said.
Good thinking(!) and much more affordable than purchasing a large piece of wool.
The original pincushion designs are by Patty Harvey
Completed in 2012
Hand appliqued, hand embroidered, hand quilted.
Susie used #5 Pearl (Perle) cotton for all the embroidery stitches.
"Big Stitch" quilting: #8 Pearl cotton
Susie combined several mediums in her quilt.
Notice the use of embroidery stitches, buttons and other embellishments.
Oh, the possibilities!
