Cube Pinnie

No automatic alt text available.

I finished making the blocks for my neighbor's quilt. Phew! They're ironed and trimmed and all set to be sewn into a quilt top. As a quick diversion, I decided to make this Cube Pinnie by May Chappell. She has a great tutorial on her blog which you can find here. It's quick (took about 30 minutes) and it's so darn cute! I cut three strips as you can see above.

I ironed the wider strip in half and lined up raw edges to one of the other strips. I sewed all the way around. I lined up raw edges of the 3rd strip to raw edges of the MIDDLE of this piece. (Forgot to take a picture, oops!)

You end up with this weird looking thing. I may have over pinned but I thought that might help me out in the end.

After some careful sewing, this is what I ended up with!

I used fiber filling but crushed walnut shells was recommended. It would probably stand up better with the shells. It's fine for me. It's so cute and I just love that little pocket. It's a nice feeling to make something and finish it up so quickly. Nice change of pace for me!!
