My mum's friend Pat makes thrifty hexagon hand-stitched patchworks. They are really what patchwork is all about - using up little old pieces of otherwise redundant fabric. I will ask her if I can post a picture of one of her tops soon. Whenever Mum visits her, she told me that she almost always sits on a pin! Her sofa is her pincushion. And so, as its her birthday next week, I whizzed up this Cathedral Window Pin Cushion for her last night.
I followed a great tutorial, which you can find here on the My Go Go Life blog. It's a really great tutorial and a quick way to try a Cathedral Window. I love this pattern but I don't think I have the patience for a whole quilt of the little *origami* squares. They EAT fabric !!!! But they do look super cute.
There are some amazing ones in the Flikr group.
