Emily sent in her tute for this cute mini pincushion: I have made a mini version of the popular stuffed pincushion flowers and show a few ways to use them. Hopefully soon others will make some too

Claire from matching pegs blog wrote in with this letter and a tutorial for this fantastic looking cushion – inspired by this pincushion tutorial.

Way back in April 2007 you posted a link to a tutorial for a cute little pincushion by May Britt. At the time, I tried it, made a mistake, and ended up with something completely different. Recently I tried it again and got it to work. It is amazing that 15 squares make such an unusual and beautiful shape. I contacted May and explained my intention to make a large cushion of the same kind, using the sewing machine and not paper piecing. With her permission I have written a tutorial for making such a cushion. I have discovered that the shape is called a tulip or lotus biscornu. Biscornu are often made by Cross-stitchers out of two or more squares of AIDA or linen that has intricate stitched patterns on them. I have called mine a “Star Fruit Cushion Tutorial” because it reminded me of the fruit.
