Pincushion PDF quilt pattern SUNFLOWER

This e-book shows you how to make a large pin-cushion with a brown centre and yellow petals like a sunflower. Included are instructions for making a patchwork pieced top and there is a tutorial on how to free-machine quilt the top if you wish to use this technique. The pincushion is 178mm wide from petal tip to petal tip and 63mm high (7" x 2.5"), so plenty deep enough to take extra-long pins.
