Sew this: Strawberry Pincushions with Poppie Cotton

Make a Strawberry Pincushion from Poppie Cottons Fabrics

View File to PrintThese darling strawberry pincushions will keep you charmed until summer actually comes along. The design is from Poppie Cotton, a new quilting cotton company based here in the Vancouver, WA area. The company is the creation of an illustrator and a quilter coming together. Both have previously worked with companies like Moda, Cricut, Martha Stewart and Riley Blake Designs. Their first line, Prarie Sisters is a lovely grouping that has a fresh take on the farmhouse style with a good helping of lovely botanical prints added in.
