The Jo Morton Stitcher group I belong to is holding a pincushion exchange this month. The goal was to make a pincushion and somehow incorporate Jo's fabrics into the creation or send a few fat quarters of them along with the pincushion.

I decided to make a couple of my own published designs—a miniature strawberry pincushion and an appliquéd needlecase made with Jo's Crimson and Clover fabrics. I've been making these strawberry pincushions for quilt shops for several years now and had fun making this one up in brown wool and one of the pink fabrics from Jo's Complements line. I picked that particular fabric because the pattern sort of resembles strawberry seeds!

The inside of the needlecase holds a handy little pair of embroidery scissors for those projects-on-the-go. I'll be making another little needlecase in the same fabrics for my TDIPT offering next week. If you're interested, just click on my TDIPT button in the left sidebar for more details.
