Modern Log Cabin Quilting -- Perfect Little Pin Cushion!

It's time for Modern Log Cabin Quilting project number 4 - the perfect little pincushion!

Log Cabin Pin Cushion

Dolin picked the ideal fabric for this - Sew Happy by Monaluna from Robert Kaufman, combined with the scissor fabric from Momo's Wonderland by Moda. Dolin must have dug in our scrap box to find that bit of Momo fabric. You might still have a piece of it in your stash as well! 

The teeny tiny log cabin emery (for sharpening your needles) is attached to the pin cushion with a bit of twill tape. Both are finished off with some buttons. We have lots of buttons at the shop that would be perfect for this project!

Susan Beal, the author of Modern Log Cabin Quilting, will be joining us at Bobbin's Nest Studio for a book signing and quilting event on Thursday, May 19 from 5-8pm. We'll have free log cabin kits for attendees (while supplies last!) and sewing machines set up for you to try your hand at making a log cabin block. Susan is excited to meet everyone and share her love of log cabin quilting, so plan to stop by for a few refreshments and to make your own block! Full details in our previous blog post.
