Pins, pins, pins

The very first time I ever went to a National Quilt show I saw a smallish quilt made up to hold Commemorative pins.

I thought it was such a cool idea to have a quilt to display pins from various Quilt shows.


I never got around to making a small quilt for this purpose, mostly because I did not have many pins.

But after we moved last year, I found several pins that were attached to the name badge holders from various Quilt shows.

One of my quilting buddies gave me these cute little quilt sayings which I thought would make a great little quilt.

And so here they are. On display. The start of my collection :-)

I don't know if I will ever fill it up, but at least they have a nice place to light!

Happy Quilting!
