We recently decided to revisit this 8-pointed civil war star pincushion - it's a heavyweight contender for top marks as one of our all time favorite featured pincushions! Do you remember this version from way back in 2011?
Well our new option features a scrappy look and showcases a group of shirting prints from Marcus fabrics. We saw a version Pam Buda (Heartspun Quilts) had created and decided we'd stitch one up in a similar fashion - we've added some trim and a vintage shell button to the top.
We weighted this one down with the buckshot...and have a few kits ready to go. The buckshot is much heavier than our typical crushed walnut pincushion filling and a bit of an effort to source but also makes this project unique! If you want to make your own version the project pattern can be found on the Marcus Fabrics website here: pincushion
