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!!!
Derby Day
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......

Keep on Stitchin'!!
