    Inspired by Retro's pin cushion tutorial ( here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-29454-1.htm , Thanks, Retro!), I decided to make a couple of pin cushions using those fabric strips that Moda uses to wrap their jelly rolls and layer cakes with. It was an easy-breezy project and was fun to make. Now I have a couple more pin cushions to add to my collection. :)

    Yes, it was so fun to make. You are the best quilting buddy we gals could have. I bet your collection of pin cushions will grow in the near future when folks read this....check your mailbox often. Tell them you have a special wooden basket for them to be put in. You'll have to post us a pic.
