A day for Pincushions

I was using up the last of the jelly roll.  This piece I will border with the same fabric as the quilt and make into a cushion.
 Then I made two pincushions with some 21/2" squares.
 That left 3 squares remaining from the whole jelly roll.  These have gone into my 21/2" squares tub to be used another day.
 With some of the other scraps I sorted the other day, I made a couple more pincushions.
I made a couple of pinwheel blocks.  These were made up from half square triangles left over from doing Amy's BOM.  The one on the left was made from a 51/2" square,  I folded all the corners into the middle to form the pincushion.

I don't think I've finished with pincushions yet.  I saw some lovely ones whilst browsing the other day, so may try a couple more designs.

Today, the sewing machine will be getting a rest, I have to take the boys swimming!
