A rainbow of felt

 We just got a huge selection of high quality felt in the shop. Perfect for embellishment on these Heather Bailey patterns shown below. 
Or to make this apple pincushion from her Fresh Picked Pattern. This pattern also contains directions for a pear, tomato and strawberry!
What a cute gift.
 What would you make if you had all these colors in YOUR stash?

Shop Sample

Deb made an adorable sample out of it here from the BQ3 pattern by Maple Island. Isn't is so cheerful and bright?
 I quilted it with an allover pattern of little flowers 
and loopdee-loos.
Good team work I would say. It is super cute and whipped up really fast!
I love the BQ patterns by Maple Island because they have lots of options for sizes and they are really user friendly.
