Executive editor Jennifer Keltner created a supersize pincushion using fabrics from the Golden Afternoon collection from Connecting Threads. She joined the edges of four Courthouse Steps blocks, stopping and starting seams 1/4" from the corners, to make a tube. She added blocks to the open edges of the pieced tube, leaving an opening along a bottom edge, to make a cube. After turning the cube right side out, she added fiberfill and a pouch filled with crushed walnut shells for weight, then slip-stitched the opening closed.
