I love pincushions, so I'm constantly keeping an eye out for another pattern. When I found a pattern for a pear I 'went to town' with ideas - mixed fabrics makes for a vintage-look.
During the search for the pear pattern I found this book: A Patchwork Christmas by Margit Echols.
The book is packed with a variety of fruits and vegetable patterns.
Not only those patterns, but Christmas patterns too. Let me just say... this book is FILLED with patterns and sewing instructions - the book has become one of my favorites.
