A Quilter's Pin Dish


This pretty pressed glass dish may have started out in life as a candy, nut or pickle dish, 
but now it's a quilter's pin dish! I use mine for straight pins and basting pins. It adds an elegant touch to my quilt studio. I enjoy the way it sparkles in the sunlight. 
These make terrific gifts because quilting time is "me time."
See the new gifts category in my Etsy shop.

Thumbs-Up at Brookside Quiltwork's Selvage Quilt Exhibit!

A visitor from Cornwall Bridge, CT gives a thumbs-up at Brookside Quiltworks in South Egremont, MA. She is viewing the "Red Zinger" selvage quilt made by Karen Griska.

There are twenty selvage quilts on exhibit until the end of May (this month!). Be sure to enter the free drawing for a selvage wall quilt from the exhibit. Take a look at the selvage lamp (I know, right?) and see all the little selvage pincushions! The quilts are for sale, or pick up a pattern and make one. ;)

Of course you'll want to see the owner Catherine's great selection of fabrics. Who can resist?
