Biscuit - Pincushion Pattern

Biscuit is my 2nd little pattern!

After a few requests from Local Quilt Shops I decided to put my pincushions together into a pattern.  The pattern is full of new illustrations, better instructions and a template option as well.

Biscuit - JBQ 114

The "little patterns" will cost $6.50
They are smaller {4.5" x 6"} and super cute!
{and still printed in FULL color... and fully illustrated!}

Here is the back of the pattern.
It shows a few more options.

The cover shoot for this pattern wasn't too hectic.  I knew I wanted the pincushion to be big... take up most of the cover... & that I wanted two of them in the photo.  After that it was just playing with the arrangement, lighting, camera lenses etc.

Here is a collage of a few that didn't make the cut.

One of the cover pincushions is made in Hello Luscious by Basic Grey.  I immediately fell in love with the blue prints and quickly made the pincushion.  They are very fast to whip up!  Here is the blue one full of crushed walnut shells. {The pink one is empty in the photo since I ran out.}
{They will be at market in the Basic Grey booth!}


I'm a busy bee over here getting ready for market.  This will be market #5... and while you'd think I would have learned to not work up until the last minute... nope... hasn't happened!


Come back tomorrow to learn more about Come What May!

Looks great, but I can't use walnut shells (child with allergies). Any other suggestions???

They are very cute.
Mary: Instead of walnut shells you could probably use little plastic pellets, about the size of BBs. I think craft stores should have them.

My dog has eaten three pin cushions. They were full of sawdust. I wonder what he would do with walnut shells- it might be MORE attractive. Of course, this is the dog who thought that yuck no chew spray was a tasty treat. Who knows what his tastes in pincuschion stuffing is.

Have a ball at market! I love the pink pincushion.
If I don't have walnut shells I've been using the little plastic pellets for weight surrounded by stuffing, makes a nice balance.
