This is the first of several posts about my time at BIQR 2013. Today, I would like to show you some of the interesting pincushions of BIQR. I did several tours around the sewing room admiring other people's projects and came across some unique pincushions, which I had to photograph, of course!
This one was purchased at Crate and Barrel--it is not really a pincushion, but some sort of decoration that the owner is using as a pincushion.
I thought it looked like a hedgehog!
The base part is made from a small wooden bowl.
This little wool house was used by a quilter who actually sewed something with those little pieces in the bag beside the pincushion!
Everyone needs a cup of tea and a grasshopper pincushion!
I liked the leaf pins in this pincushion. It was attached to a scrap catcher.
This one matched the fabrics that this quilter was using.
Deb and Kathy brought some cute mug rugs that a friend made for them. Here are their pincushions:
Stay tuned for more posts including pictures of Gwen and her quilts and some of the quilts that were made at the retreat.
