It’s pronounced “doe-deck-a-HEE-drun” – according to my geek husband. It’s a 12-sided object. Here is half of it.
I knew there wasn’t going to be time or space for any quilting over the Christmas holidays, so I picked up a couple of quilting magazines from the bookstore to keep me happy. When I flipped through the latest issue of the New Zealand Quilter I found this – a 12-sided pin cushion. Just what I needed – a small portable hand-sewn project to keep me sane!
I did most of the prep work on a portable table while watching football and chatting with family.
It’s made of 5 diamonds sewn into stars. 12 stars, one for each side.
I can’t wait to see it finished!
Now THAT is cool! I’m not a pincushion user, but it would certainly be a nice, bright addition to my sewing room (hint, hint!!). Love the fabrics. Did you hand-sew all of those diamonds?????
