Quite A Beautiful Mistake

This purple and white floral 9-square was one of the "mistake" squares I made for the block swap. It, along with many others, was too small for the swap by 1/2 an inch. I have 12 of these little 9-squares stashed away without a purpose for now and I didn't expect them to find a home so soon! I started out using left over blocks from a quilt I made but wasn't paying attention and sewed one of the blocks on completely upside down. Luckily, I decided to simply switch fabrics instead of getting out my trusty seam ripper. The imperfect 9-squares worked perfectly for Heather Bailey's "Square Deal Pincushion" pattern. I found this pattern browsing one day and couldn't wait to make it. I'd like to make a bunch because they only take about 20 minutes to make, if that. 
 Unfortunately, the two buttons I put on this are my last two big buttons and one of them wasn't even big enough to qualify for the project according to the pattern. I really need to go button hunting. Big buttons or not, I can't wait to use my new pincushion! That shade of green is one of my favorite colors and now I get to look at it every time I sew. I suggest everybody tries this one out, it is simple and worth it.
