V and Co: Good Neighbors Pincushion Party

 Well Hello! Today is my day on this fun good neighbors pincushion party! Amanda Jean's blog was one of the very first blogs I ever followed and commented on (what seems like a bazillion years ago!) But the coolest thing was that she actually then came and visited my blog and commented on my post, and all I could think was…Geez that's super swell and nice! Quickly we became friends and a few years later we met at Quilt Market, and it was as if we were good neighbors just meeting up in Minnesota to check out some quilts. She just has this way of making you feel like you've known each other for years. And well now we have known each other for years and I'm so excited to help celebrate Amanda's new fabric line Good Neighbors with Connecting Threads!

 Amanda is so great at putting color and fabrics together in her many many maaaaaaaany quilts she creates so it's no surprise that her fabric line is so good together!  For my pin cushion I wanted to use almost all if could in one pincushion to show off all the fabrics together!
 So a little string block pincushion is what I made!
Next week I'll do a little tutorial on how I made it. :) Thank you Amanda for the wonderful chance to work with your fabric! I love it and its so bright and fun and well, kind of just like you!


Thanks for stopping by! 

Remember to come back next week for the how to on how to make this little guy! 

and make sure you check out all the other pincushions as well!

Vanessa, it's so nice to meet you! I love string blocks period...so scrappy and a great way to actually use those scraps. Your polka dot handle scissors is a great compliment to the pin cushion...such happiness, as "Good Neighbors" tends to bring out. Thanks for sharing.
