I've been enjoying watching the Crazy Mom Quilts pincushion challenge-- #thepincushionproject on Instagram. Every day in July, Emma Jean Nyberg set herself a goal to make one pincushion. (If you aren't on Instagram, click the link to see a recent post on her blog with photos of some of her pincushions).
So, when I needed a birthday present for a Red Sox baseball fan, I decided that a pincushion was the perfect little gift! I made her pincushion using the quilt block named The Economy Block. It's a square in a square in a square. The center block is an old licensed Red Sox (TM) fabric from my stash and the other fabrics have baseball themes too.
I had so much fun making that pincushion that I made 2 more! One to keep for myself and one for an up-coming pin cushion swap!
