April Pincushion PDF Quilt Pattern | A Year of Pincushions Series


This little drum-shaped pincushion is sure to add some charm to your sewing room. And the question is: Will you be able to make just one? Or will you make several just like we did?

This is the 4th pincushion in our Year Of Pincushions Series project. It is a little smaller than the other ones and it can be made a little quicker since it consists only of a top panel and a tube-shaped side panel. It is perfect for gift making and by changing out the fabric colors it can fit any season and mood.

The pattern comes in two alternate sizes.

*This is a PDF pattern available for instant download. Nothing will be shipped to you.*

The mini patchwork pincushion includes:

  • Detailed step-by-step instructions
  • Full-size placement diagram for applique
  • Printable templates for applique for use with printable freezer paper or printable Wash-Away applique sheets

We also have a detailed mini pincushion tutorial for free on YouTube that takes you through all the steps of constructing this pincushion!


A Year of Pincushions is a series of 12 monthly pincushions that we will be releasing throughout 2021. The different pincushions feature a variety of techniques. They will include English paper piecing, foundation paper piecing, hand applique, machine applique, and a bit of embroidery for embellishment. Make your favorite pincushion or collect all 12 of them throughout the year! Each pincushion features exquisite and delightful detail and is sure to add a beautiful touch to any sewing corner, as well as hours of fun creativity.
