I bought a bag of Japanese fabric scraps last year, and recently made this little pincushion from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts.

 It’s a wonderful way of using up teeny tiny scraps which seem too small for anything useful. I love the colour combination here, lots of cheery pink and purple. And those animals really pop with the contrast. The reel in the background is from Beyond Fabrics  on Columbia Road.

I’m also cutting lots of my long-squirrelled-away fabrics for another quilt. This will be a long term project (probably a few months) but I am enjoying the cutting in preparation.
