Pincushion Swap

My guild, the KCMQG, frequently hosts fun swaps.  This time, we're swapping pincushions with several other MQG chapters.  I pulled some favorite materials and printed off a paper pieced template.  This block is called Economy, and you can find it here.
I had fun with the directional newsprint and fussy cutting the center.
My first attempt finished at three inches (tiny!), so I'm including it is a mini extra.  Four and half inches seems like a more useful size.
I'm looking forward to seeing all the other great pincushions at our meeting tonight.

Very cute. I love the fussy-cut scissors. As silly as it sounds, my favorite pincushion is a baby 1.5" square. so nice to take places!
