Pin Cushion finished and ideas for the Basket Weave

Yay!! I finished the Giant Pin Cushion last evening, and let me assure you, it IS giant, lol. It was so fun to make. Thanks Vickie for the tutorial.

And for a little perspective as to it's size:


I also think I have found what I want for the triangles and borders for the basket Weave quilt. Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions. What do you think of these? (The blue for the triangles).



I think it might work.

Later,

I like your pin cushion and it will come in handy for all the pins a quilter has. I like the material too.

Your pincushion is very cute. Your fabric for the basket weave quilts looks like it will be perfect. Love the blue fabric. Can't wait to see your quilt finished.
