Good Neighbors Pincushion Party!

 Everyone's favorite blogger, Amanda Jean, has released her first fabric line, with Connecting Threads, called Good Neighbors, and it is available NOW.  Good Neighbors looks exactly like what you would expect from Amanda.  It's bright and cheerful, and works well with fabric that is already in your stash.  (The stripes are my favorite)  

I'm sure you have seen all the pin cushions that have popped up on blogs and instagram, and I too have made one.  This is actually the 1st pincushion I have ever made, and it was fun to make, I'm not sure why I haven't made one sooner, maybe because I hate pinning.  
Mine is based on the Cheerio quilt block, but I shrunk it down to 4 inches.  I decided to keep it scrappy, an ode to Amanda's love of scraps, and I love how it turned out.  The pincushion pattern can be found in this book, I just used a different patchwork square.

I have a charm pack to giveaway, so leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Friday.  (US and Canada only please).    Give away CLOSED!

If you have a minute, check out all the cool pincushions made with Good Folks:
