A quilted rooster

Some of the first projects that I started my quilting obsession with were pin cushions. Who knew pin cushions could be so fun, elaborate, and decorative while at the same time being functional?

Here are a two teacup pincushions that I made for birthday gifts for my mom and daughter:

and the quilted rooster pincushion which was a lot of fun to create. I drew the pattern free hand and then pieced left over scraps of fabric together until I got the patchwork looked I wanted:
