The Splendid Sampler - Bonus Block
This bonus block is called Derby Day in honor of the Kentucky Derby. It was to be a hat with a heart on it. Well, I didn't want to make a hat for my quilt. Instead I decided to leave off the heart and turn it into a pincushion. Hmmmm....looks more like a space ship! So here's my Derby Day Pincushion Space Ship block!!!
The applique was sewn using my sewing machine. I used decorative stitches from my machine to fancy up the plain blue hat band and chose one 'flower-ish' stitch for the pin head. Yep, sew one small flower, change thread colors, sew another small flower, change thread colors......
