Pinwheel Pincushion Are Mini-Charming

A Pincushion Pattern For Pincushions Or Jaunty Ornaments

You could whip up quite a few of these mini charm pack pincushions using any fabric you like. They’re especially fun in holiday fabric and make delightful ornaments. Choose fabric other than a holiday print and make a new pincushion for yourself, or give one or two to as a quilting gift right off the tree!


The pinwheel is so much easier than it looks with instructions to fold and stitch the pinwheel in one go. Select dark prints for the pinwheel, and lighter shades for the background of the block. Sort through scraps, buttons and trim to find combinations just waiting to be discovered.
