Country Diary fabric pincushions

My country Diary pincushions have always been well received as gifts and I have never tired of making them .
The other picture shows scraps being laid on to a piece of fabric to keep it stable for machining to make crazy patchwork.

Your pincushions are very beautiful! I've never seen anything like them. I can imagine that anyone receiving one as a gift would be thrilled.

I love all the things you have shown in your posts! The pincushions are adorable!

I'm intrigued by how you sew the scraps on. Are the edges folded in? Do you sew them with a zigzag stitch? How are the squares on the quilt sewn on? What sort of sewing machine have you got - does it do loads of fancy and free-stitch stitches?? And how long does it take for you to make all these gorgeous things?
