As I was quilting this last week, I wondered how many pincushions you use when quilting. In the last month or so I have been lucky enough to have been given two new pincushions...I have already given one away, so I have about 4 in use currently. They are strategically placed (and rotated as needed for pins):
1) by the sewing machine in use
2) on the ironing board
3) on the cutting table
4) on the side of the piecing site (currently on the bed in the guest room - on the bedside table)
This arrangement cuts down on the losing of pins and the needless trips to retrieve the pincushion and move it to the current working location.
How many pincushions do you use when quilting?
