What is it?

What is it?

I have a passion for all things that are textiles, sewing and quitling related.  So, at times I find things that seem to fit into my collections of articles related to these things.  And I don't ALWAYS know what they are.

Sometimes I am able to find out later, but sometimes I never really know.  Today I present to you one such object.

This is a hand made, three dimensional object.  It is about 7 inches high/wide. 
Each side is made of diamond shapes stitched together. 
It is solid, so not a pin cushion.
It is the same on all sides. There is no top or bottom side, no flat side.
All the sides are held together with the little white knobs.  Im not sure if they are buttons, I cannot see any button holes.

Can you see why I was attracted to this object?

I cannot, however, find a use for it.  I can't fathom what it was made for.

So, come now, and post in the comment section what your thoughts are on this thing. 

A few noteworthy things to share:

In honor of International Quilt Day (March 17, 2012), The Quilt Show ( will "open" all of its shows from the first nine series, the weekend of March 16 –18th for FREE. For three special days everyone will have the chance to view these 117 shows, at no charge.”
March 17 and 18 is the unique Great Lakes Seaway Trail National Scenic Byway War of 1812 Bicentennial Quilt Show event

And here is my finished quilt, sent, arrived and hopefully hanging along with the other 199 quilts made for this special 200th Anniversary event.
