I'm utterly amazed how quilters make whole quilts using small squares. It's definitely time consuming. This project only took 25 2" squares and it seemed to take forever, but then again I was taking my time since I'm new to this thing called quilting.
I have to say I was quiet pleased on the outcome of the square, but a little disappointed that a lot of the work was covered up once I converted it to a pincushion. I knew that most of the squares were gonna be tucked inside the cup, but I wanted to see more of the pattern, not only 9 out of the 25. Humph...oh well.
Note to self: Next time use a wide boarder for the edge of the quilt and only 9 squares in the center. This will reduce the amount of work for the pincushion.
