Good Neighbors Pincushion Party and a Giveaway!!!


Hello! I am so thrilled to be a part of the Good Neighbors Pincushion Party celebrating the new fabric Good Neighbors by Amanda Jean Nyberg a.k.a. Crazy Mom Quilts!  Amanda Jean is one of my greatest inspirations in our quilting community and I know she is for many of you too.

just like candy!
When I heard that she was releasing a fabric line with Connecting Threads  I was so happy and excited to see it! The fabric is perfect! The colors are vibrant. The low volume prints are spot on! Those little x's... love them. Playing with these fabrics was pure joy.


For my pincushion I made a pair of birdies. Are you surprised? :) I picture these little birds as "Good Neighbors". Ya know, just hanging quilts out on the line together, chirpin' away. Isn't Good Neighbors a great name for the fabric? I think so. That is why I embroidered it on the pincushion.


For the little quilt on the line I cut .25" strips and then sub-cut those into .25" squares to make a 1" quilt with 16 little squares.


 I fused those onto fusible web, ironed it to the linen and quilted it.

I love this fabric and love how affordable it is too! I think a bundle of this would be a great starter bundle for a new quilter. It has everything you need in fabric right there. Of course, it's great for any quilter. For me, I'll be using it in just about everything!

If you would like a chance to win a charm pack of all of these yummy prints just leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner next week.

Don't forget to check out the other pincushions for the party! Here is the schedule below with a chance to win a charm pack at each stop!
