Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Machine sewing
  • Basic hand sewing

Pattern Description:

A handmade pin with a wonderful vintage look! Your pin will look like it was made from an old vintage quilt- but you won't have to cut apart your cherished keepsakes to make it! I created this project because I love the look of vintage accessories, but I could never bring myself to cut apart an old quilt.

Looks beautiful on a coat or jacket lapel, or headband, barrette or tote bag. Or make a bunch and decorate a pillow, etc.

Have fun playing with different fabric combinations. This is also a great project for practicing machine quilting. Don't worry- your quilting doesn't have to be perfect because you are going to cut it apart anyway! Anyone with machine sewing experience can complete this project.

Scrappy Quilt-y Flower Pins make wonderful gifts for every lady on your list- mom, sister, quilting buddy, guild member, Secret Sister, babysitter....
