This is the pinnie that I made for my partner in the FLiPS swap. There’s a fairy that lives inside! My partner received it, so I can show it now!

I used an orphan block that I had left over from DQS (Doll Quilt Swap) on flickr. I love it when orphan blocks can be used in new ways! Don’t you?!

Thanks for stopping by!


An option for FLiPS…

IMG_0978Many of you may know that I am a Swap-a-holic.  I can’t seem to help myself!  LOL!  I belong to a flickr group called, “Fab Little Pincushion Swap” or “FLiPS” for short…  I’m playing around with some free patterns that I’ve found online.  This one is from the following blog:  Thanks Penny!  And to all those creative people who make patterns free to us junkies.  Er.  Creative folk.

I, of course had to add some flying triangles because that’s how I am…  I also shortened it a step and machine stitched my elongated hexies together…  (I stopped exactly on the corner so I could still hand stitch the hexies to the end.)   It’s a fun pattern and I’m sure I’ll make it again!  😉

???????????????????????????????Here’s a close up of the center!  I love Kaffee dots…  Must. have. more.

Thanks for visiting!!!  Stitch on…
