Sew-along alert: mark your calendars for a Pin Pals challenge in the New Year! Get your copy of Pin Pals and join Carrie Nelson for some pinnie patchwork – the fun begins January 14!
Pin Pals – 40 Patchwork Pinnies, Poppets, and Pincushions with Pizzazz, by Carrie Nelson is a super fun new book which is a “must have” for those who appreciate pin cushions, but also an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning to make these sweet projects for gifts, as well as to use in your own sewing room.
Pretty. Playful. Pinnies! Best-selling author Carrie Nelson packs 40 adorable pinnies with personality! Pincushions are quick to stitch and so addicting–no quilter can make just one. And why make just one when they’re so easy to create? Simply sew, quilt, turn, and stuff! Display them as singles or in pleasing piles. You’ll want to sew just for the joy of it.
This book is an amazing value, packed with #CreativeGoodness and fun. You need not be hooked on pin cushions to enjoy it. Carried has done an excellent job incorporating in cute block designs, which she has miniaturized for us, as well as other unique designs for pincushions – all of which can help you create stunning pincushions to give as gifts to quilting and sewing friends, as well as to decorate your home. Don’t overlook how much fun they could also be to take to a quilt retreat.
If you don’t yet have a copy of Pin Pals, you should be able to check it out at your favorite Quilt Shop, Shop Martingale, or Amazon. Of course, I hope you’ll also want to follow Carrie: @justcarrieintexas on Instagram and join the fun by participating in her upcoming Pin Pals Pinnie Challenge which kicks off on Monday, January 14th:
