I was on Karen's "Journey of a Quilter" where she shared Heirloom Tomato pincushions that she and her friend made. She in turn was inspired by Kaaren's, "Painted Quilter", tutorial. Visit both. I bought this silk pincushion in China just 3 years ago. I remember my mother and grandmothers having these from the 30's/40's, probably from Chinatown, LA. I hadn't seen them since I was a girl so of course I had to buy one.
