Commemorative pins

The very first time I ever went to a National Quilt show I saw a small 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.

After we moved a few years ago, I found several pins that were attached to the name badge holders from various quilt shows I had attended.

One of my quilting buddies gave me these cute little quilt sayings and thought they 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!
Do you have a special place to display your commemorative pins?

Happy Quilting!

What a cute idea, since I only have one pin at this time I'll wait to see if this will work for me, but I sure like yours.

I put my pins on my name badge for my larger quilt guild.

I don't have any quilting pins, but have a number of pins/buttons from our State Fair. I made a wall hanging quilt to display them on, and the block I used was called State Fair! It looks like a bit like a sunflower.
