Pincushion kit giveaway 3

G'day, here I am having lots of fun with this giveaway and it's day three already so lets  move from pretty to fun with this one from Rosalie Quinlan, half of the Melly and Me team. It's a ladybird pincushion with a pouch to match, how cute is that? Just leave a comment on this post to be in the draw. Winner to be announced next Friday.
No klosje (spool) blocks to show this week as I surge on ahead with hand quilting. I spend an afternoon cutting pieces and it only takes an evening and a bit to sew what I've prepped. The hold up is getting out the fabrics and folding and putting them back.

I thought I'd look for some charm squares or fat eights to give a bit of variety without the outlay but there wasn't much at the shop.  I did find this jelly roll in the style of fabrics I'm using. It's called Old Primrose Inn by Blackbird Designs. I can easily cut blocks from these and it'll be faster too.
See you all tomorrow for day 4.

Love the ladybug pincushion and bag.

I used to have a huge old maple tree in my back yard that was plagued with aphids every spring and summer. I remember buying a whole bag of ladybugs one year and releasing them into the tree to have a feast. They did their best, but even a thousand ladybugs were sadly outnumbered. This bag is much cuter than the one I bought!

Anna said...

My niece Carla has been 10 years cancer free, and the lady bug is her motif and I would love to make bug in a bag for her.

BTW I am enjoying your older posts especially regarding machine quilting. Your's sounded like a practical approach to developing the skill. Do you do the feed dogs up quilting and does that allow you to be slower, or is all still down to lots of hours of practice?

D@isy said...

I love the pincushion.
Thanks for the opportunity to win !!

Ruth B said...

Rosalie is another of my favorite Aussies! So cute, Rosalie!

I have followed you blog for a while now and would love a chance at this wonderful giveaway!

Brenda said...

Darling pincushion and bag. And great posing for the picture. Who else, on first glance, thought they were looking at Sunbonnet Sue? Or do I just need to get my eyes checked?

I love little tiny things, and little tiny bags to put them in. It's really true (although try to convince a kid) that the best things come in small packages.
