Lets Sew Quilt Along

Block 8, or the third block in Segment 2 of the Lets Sew Quilt Along is a cute pincushion design by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting.

Lets Sew Quilt Along

The block is as easy, or embellished, as you would like!

I chose to machine applique my tomato pincushion.  I used a silver metallic thread to machine stitch the pin shafts.  

I also drew and machine appliqued a strawberry to the pincushion.  Stitching by hand, I embellished with a stem stitch and a chain stitch.

I may use buttons for the pin heads after putting this project together.  

Or I may not.

  1. This is the cutest sew along! I finally relented and am downloading the patterns. I love all the ones you have made! Hugs


  2. I love the pin fabric you used, and I agree, you can’t have a tomato pin cushion without the strawberry!


  3. Such a fun and unique block! Looks great.


  4. Not too sure about the taste sensation, but the block looks great!


  5. Actually, I think the tomato looks a lot like my two pumpkin pincushions! Well, except for the colour.

    I really like the way you have personalised the design and your hand stitches are so neat! Wimbledon is underway so it’s definitely strawberry season here 🙂


    • I used to embroider a lot. I miss it, and should pick it up again. I need more hours in day!
      It is cherry pickin’ time here, and I have a belly full of yumminess right now! 🙂


  7. Looks great! I’ve downloaded the patterns after seeing yours, though I’m not sure when I’ll make it 🙂
