Nuts About My Day

Nuts About My Day –

with a my pattern free for the duration of the blog hop.

stbs-Nuts-About-267x300Today 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.

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.
