Scrappy football pincushion and Kona colour cards available in the UK

I made this over the weekend (totally inspired by squidgy ball made by Maria in May) - let me know if you would like to know how to make one for yourself although I suspect most of you could work it out from the picture - but if anyone would like an English paper piecing tutorial combined with the pattern for this pincushion, I'm happy to put one on.
And have you seen what's new over at Simply Solids - Kona solid roll ups, Moda essential dots and KONA COLOUR CARDS - the must-have accessory for all modern quilters is now available to buy right here in the UK.  I have one, Mandy has one. If you haven't seen one in the flesh, it will seem like a lot of money but it is a huge folded piece of cardboard covered in small rectangles of Kona solid fabric colours so you can match your fabrics directly to the perfect matching or contrasting solids and sashings.  And Mandy can get in any colour you want.  AND she lives in my village - hurray!

  3. I would like some more info on the ball please! Catherine at The Sewing Attic just posted one of these she made too and she mentioned pentagons, so I feel I may need a bit of help...

  4. I saw the post on Simply Solids on Thursday night and jumped out of bed, turned my PC back on and ordered a colour card, I was that keen on getting my hands on one LOL! Hmmm, perhaps I need to get out more, but it's just sooooo pretty :) So many gorgeous colours!

  8. I'd love a tutorial - being fairly new to quilting and having trouble managing to keep my blocks straight this might be a challenge but I'l love to have a go!
    thanks

  9. I love the ball. It should be a stress ball because I could destress just by keep looking at all the yummy fabric. (But maybe not do the squeezy bit with pins in it!)
