Pin Cushion Block Instructions

Hello swappers!  I hope you had a wonderful January and got lots of sewing done.

I have emailed the pattern for the pin cushion blocks.  There are two attachments, one for the pattern and the other for the applique' cushion.  Please remember to measure the square and verify that it is 1" before you begin.  I think you will find that this month's pattern is very easy and makes up quickly.  

Please use a white on white background fabric for all of the background fabric.  Please hand or machine stitch the pins in and add beads to the ends to make them look real.  Please make one Pin Cushion Block AND one Between block.  Do not sew them together so the recipient can use them in the order they desire.  

You can make a maximum of 6 blocks to swap.

WE ARE NEARLY DONE!  In March we will make the final row of blocks and then I will release the border pattern for April.  We will be swapping border blocks in April to finish up.  I like a variety of fabrics in mine so the swap gives us that. We are finishing just in time because I just found out this week that my daughter is getting married in May.

Deana I just cut out my pieces for this block. You say to cut out 1 B piece (1.5 x 2), but it should say you need to cut 2 of these B-background pieces.
