Pin Quilt


Hello Friends,



Anyone out there collect pins? Well my daughter had several neat little pins that needed a home other than in a plastic baggie thrown in a desk drawer.
I came up with this scrappy pin quilt. It measures 17-inches square with 2-inch squares for showcasing the pins.

The problem to solve was how to hang this on the wall without all the little pinbacks scratching up the wall behind it.


I basically extended the rod pocket to cover the entire back. Top and bottom were enclosed in the binding.




Open on both sides, it was easy to add pins.


OK, now to make one for all my pins! Talk at you later! Rumi
