This pattern Queenstitch Pincushion (slightly altered) from the March 2019 issue of NeedleArts, consists primarily of queenstitch, however, the center is Smyrna and the borders are running stitch. The original pattern has a single running stitch border bordered by a satin stitch border. The second border seemed a bit too heavy and thus I substituted a second running stitch border. For the bottom I redrew the corner motifs from the front on a diagonal to place in what would become the visible corners. The colors I chose to complement my sewing space.
Our chapter is interested in learning more finishing techniques and this pincushion was easily adaptable for use as a biscornu demo. We may follow up in the future with a lesson on star shaped or 15 sided biscornu. What is your favorite finishing technique?
