In the North Carolina Quilt Symposium goody bag, there were a set of 7 paper hexagons and small fabric squares with instructions. They were donated by Paper Pieces and Blank Quilting. On the top there was a warning "Addicting and Contagious!" and now I can see why. I decided to give it a try while I was watching television the other night. I finished all 7 hexagons in less than half an hour. I sewed them together and then was wondering what I would do with them. I finally decided on a pin cushion because I recently purchased glass head pins that needed a home. I did not realize until I was finished that the glass head pins were yellow (lime green) and blue...they matched the pin cushion perfectly.
I filled the pin cushion with crushed walnut shells (I purchased a small bag from the pet store a while ago). It has lasted a long time, but I am almost finished with the bag...I guess I will have to make another trip to the pet store if I want to continue making pin cushions.
