On Thursday night I met up with a whole bunch of awesome ladies for the last meeting of the year for the Portland Modern Quilt Guild.  It was pretty fantastic ~ I’ve really been enjoying my time with so many awesomely creative people this year!

We all swapped fabric 2 months ago to make a holiday gift with it for our swap partner.  I received fabric from Pétra, and I loved her fabric choices and totally admire her creative aesthetic… so that made me a little nervous.  I ended up making some pillow covers for her ~ and I was thrilled (and a little relieved) when she said she liked them:

I brought some bright fun fabrics and this is what Kim made me ~ and it’s perfect!  I was thinking of making myself a needle holder (and kept putting it off) and the pin cushion container is super sweet!  Isn’t this great:

Is there a pattern for the pin cushion container somewhere? So cute and useful, too.
