with a my pattern free for the duration of the blog hop.
Today is finally my day to show off what I planned for the Nuts About Blog Hop. I was so excited about the idea of nuts about, that I went completely nuts about it … LOL.
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.
