They finish at 5" square, making them a generous size so you wont lose them on your cutting or sewing table and they make a pretty addition to your sewing bag.
I quilted the linen half with 1/2" spaced diagonal lines and I stippled the patchwork half with some free motion swirls to give them some lovely texture.
I used a mix of Bonnie and Camille fabrics but of course they will look lovely in any fabric or colour combination. You could use a solid homespun instead of the linen or showcase a lovely large print fabric and sew the patchwork half in some coordinating solids. The possibilities are endless.
I've also included a section on adding some little extras to the pincushions, to make them even more special and unique.
