Little Grandbaby Granny Star Pincushion Has Arrived

I can only imagine how exciting it is,
waiting for new grandbabies to arrive!
Just this afternoon,
part 3 of my guest posts at Bear Creek Quilting Company.

Allow me to introduce the

Now, if this pinnie were a baby,
it would definitely weigh in at over 10 lbs.
The finished size is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 1 1/2" or so.

I love bigger pincushions, myself.
They don't get lost as easily amid my sewing stuff.

There are lots of pieces to the granny star block,
and those star points are pretty tiny.

where you will find a method to create
near-perfect star easily!

I hope you'll be inspired to try out one or more
of my Granny Star methods...

  1. This is just absolutely brilliant, Amy. Cute as a pincushion, but just as perfect in any size!! I'll have to try some soon...

  2. This is the cutest little grandbaby I have seen - to date! It is exciting waiting for a new arrival but also frustrating if they turn up late.

  3. Just read your wonderful tutorial at Bear Creek. It's so clever how you folded your star points Amy! I really love this pincushion! And the larger size is a good thing, I agree!

  4. What a gorgeous pincushion! The center star really pops in these fabrics!
    I like bigger pincushions, too. I am going over to Bear Creek Quilting now for the tutorial!!

  5. I am rather fond of collecting and making pincushions. My fav one is a large round hexi one I found in an Op Shop. Larger ones are better for general use. Love yours.

  6. This is the cutes thing. The star looks like it's 3D how cool!! Great color choices and of course perfect corners. Amy you are so precise! Love it!


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
