    This pin cushion was made by MIL about 70 years ago when she was 14 going to home make in school. I Have never seen one like this before and would like to have the pattern. Maybe you members on this board can help me fined the pattern.

    Wow! As a pincushion collector, I think this is pretty awesome! I have never seen anything close to this before. It will be interesting to see if anyone else has information on this design.

    It looks like each "appendage" is made from 3 diamond shapes sewn together. Have no idea how she managed to sew all of them together in the center without a huge mess, though.

    Strange, interesting little thing!

    That is really neat. No ideas on the pattern, though.

    Could you try cutting out diamonds from paper and taping them together to see if it forms the right shape?

    I've seen it I've seen it let me see if I can find it. You sew it together in 5 different parts and then put the part together in the center if it the one I think

    I'm not sure but , I wonder if you do the 3 diamonds & then put together half the things & then put together the 2 halves. Could you tell us the approximate size of those diamonds & how many there are in the pin cushion?
