Pin Pouf Winner!

Random Generator selected #2 as the winner of the Pin Pouf pattern giveaway.

Congratulations to Heather A! Regarding her current pin cushion she said:

I'm currently using a round dollar store kitchen sponge set into a clear, round plastic food container. FUGLY! I SO want a pincushion. This one would be lovely for me. Or ... one of these days I'll just have to bite the bullet and make one.

A kitchen sponge? Yikes! Almost as bad as my rolled up batting number. Time for a new pin cushion. I'm sending Heather a copy of my PDF pattern plus fabric to make her own.

Originally I said the fabrics would be red and aquas, then red, white, and blue. It's just so hard to decide! I settled on my current color combination obsession: orange and green. These fabrics are all designed by Sandy Klop. Her American Jane fabrics are just so fabulous and versatile. Hope you like them, Heather :)

Peas & Carrots plus Pindots
Thanks to everyone who participated. The Pin Pouf is just an appetizer. I've got several quilt patterns in progress and can't wait to share my designs, but mum's the word until they're completely finished.

Later this week I'll be blogging about the International Quilt Study Center and Museum that I had the good fortune of visiting this past weekend. Until then, happy sewing!



  1. Congratulations to Heather A!!

  2. Oh, Annik! I can't tell you how tickled I am to win your pin cushion pattern! As you understand, I am SORELY in need of a real pin cushion. I'm also a beginner with machine sewing so this would be a great project for me to COMPLETE (the operative word being "complete").

    And I'm ever so thrilled about the bit of American Jane fabric you sent. When I first started actually making a quilt just a couple of years ago, the first fabric I bought (and still love) is a bunch of American Jane's Recess line, which is now half way to being a full sized yoyo quilt! Hand work ... great for me. Machine sewing ... scary!

    Thanks again so much. I'll send you details via email.

    Thanks, Gill, too for your kind wishes!
