Nuts About My Day –
with a my pattern free for the duration of the blog hop.
And I think I really was a bit nuts, as you will see from my project. I had decided to go with applique this time round. And not just some blocks, an entire baby quilt.
First I made the duck pond, which quickly expanded into some more fish at the bottom. Once I finished the top, a lady saw it and paid for it, which is why there is a name at the top.
The picture is entirely in applique, except for the name which is paper pieced.
Why did I do a giant picture like this, because I wanted to do something nuts, and it was nuts. There were times I felt like swearing while working with all the bigger pieces. And it used up an entire roll of fusing.
This one is 40 x 60 inches finished.
This pattern to download is 20 x 20 for the duck pond + 20 x 10 for the extra fish.
Pattern. Now in my Craftsy store.
Oh yes, did I mention that I have TWO free patterns for you, the second one is my BB-8 Droid from Star Wars, and yes I am Nuts About Star Wars and Star Trek and …
The pattern is entirely paper pieced. And 10 x 10 inches finished.
And this is what it looks like when I turned it into a mug-rug.
