Thank you for the tutorial on the Ann block, it is great for a pincushion.

Sweet pincushion! Love the idea of using crochet along with the lovely fabric.


I am starting a farmer's wife 30's QAL so I enjoyed seeing what you did with the block.


When I saw your name on the pincushion parade, I squealed and thought, "I bet Penny will do a paper pieced one." I was right! What I didn't expect was the crocheted background and the wool stuffing. You are one clever quilter. Thanks for sharing your talent and making such a delightful pincushion.

Melissa Dee

very cute pincushion! You're piecing is very impressive!

Diane Beavers

Penny, what a cool crocheted backing for a pin cushion...how natural and original. Love it. So glad you joined this blog hop..it's been thee most fun.
thanks for sharing your pinnie. After reading many posts by Amanda Jean and her pin cushions, I'm inspired to make one w/scraps left over from each of my quilting projects.

What a cute idea with the crochet backing on the pin cushion.

Sandy K

Like you pincushion. Amanda Jean's fabrics are wonderful.

The crochet pin cushion back is a great idea, I would never thought of that. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Love your little pin cushion.

bobbi dougherty

Would Love to win. Love her new line. Thanks!

Beth T.

What a cute idea, to crochet the backing. No matter how many people do the same thing--make a pin cushion, for example--there are still so many ways to make it one's own, and darling.

Amanda Jean

Penny! This is so adorable! I can't believe how teeny tiny the block is...of course that makes it extra cute! I love (!!!) the crocheted backing and the fact that you stuffed it with wool scraps. Great idea! Thank you so much for being a part of the pincushion party! And thanks for your kind words, too! xoxo


Cute pincushion. Love the fabrics. Thanks for sharing the giveaway!

Jo West

You are definitely an over achiever on your pincushion. Paper piecing, crocheted bottom. I am impressed! Very creative.

Sharon Black

Thanks for sharing your very cute pincushion:).

Wondered if you purposefully rounded the corners on your pin cushion since the paper piecing pattern is not rounded on the corners. I like the rounded corners. I like that you can do such tiny paper piecing!

Sarah J.

That tiny piecing blows me away! Such a sweet little pincushion! This is such a fun cheerful line- would be perfect to pull out in the middle of my rather long winter!

Doris McCarty

That is SEW cute!

Mary Knight

You are inspiring me to make a pincushion. I've never made one before.


I can't believe you got 28 pieces in a 3 inch square. Wonderful block. I like the idea of a crocheted back.

Lisa Marie

Super cute! I'm so enjoying all the lovely pincushions on this hop.

Quilting Tangent

Cute pincushion.

Claire Ross

What a cute pincushion, the crochet base works really well.

The pincushion you created is super cute!

Wendy S

Hi Penny! Cute pincushion. I like the crocheted bottom. I've been having fun looking at all the pincushions each day. It's kind of like a shop hop. It's introducing me to new quilt bloggers. I'm a quilter & enjoy doing a lot of the same stuff you do. We got kayaks for Christmas & live in Austin so we've been enjoying the water sports this summer too.

Linda Smith

The paper pieced FW block is perfect.
A whole FW quilt out of Good Neighbors prints would be brilliant.


Great pincushion - love the crochet back, never would have thought of that!


What a great change of pace to crochet the back :) And thanks for the tip about coloring in the paper piecing! Maybe I'll get the courage to try paper piecing someday soon.


Love the pincushion! One of these days, maybe I'll actually make one myself! My old pincushion has been around for 30 years! And it looks it!! :o)


Great idea using a crocheted back! Makes a very unique pincushion!

Pat S

Love Good Neighbors! Such pretty, bright colors!

Anita Carol Gambrell

I love the paper piecing method, I am just learning it! Great oincushion! Thanks

Patsy W

Love the pin cushion and also the fabric is phenomenal!!


I would love to win a charm pack of Amanda Jean's fabric! I would mix so well with my scraps! Thank you for the giveaway!


Another super cute pincushion! You guys are killing me with this blog hop!

Kathy E.

I am really enjoying seeing all the pincushions during this hop. There are so many variations and the Good Neighbors bundle is so adorable!


The crocheted back to your pincushion is a nice touch! Beautiful.


Love your pincushion. Thanks for the chance.
