Patty Altier of Akron, Ohio says "Go big, or go home!" This pin cushion is made from her African fabrics and selvages, and it measures 8" x 5 1/4!" Well okay then. Take a look at the big bead in the middle, perfect!
Patty is a big thinker. She's making a Millennium Charm Quilt using 2,000 different fabrics from the 1900's. She's also making a stone wall in her front yard, and she recently decided to move it 4 feet. I thinking I need a nap!
