Quiltin' and yarnin'

Unfortunately I was out of town this week so I haven't finished this project yet, but I was able to get a good start on it last weekend. I made up my own Bird of Paradise pattern for paper piecing based on some other pics I saw online, and I plan to make a wall-hanging for my bedroom. Bring a little color to a dark corner. My goal is to finish this up in the next week or two!

Meanwhile, I had the urge to do some crocheting so I whipped up this baby blanket, now available in my Etsy store:

  1. Ooooh and aaah - love those blocks. Your crochet is wonderful too!

  2. How beautiful! I'm not much of a quilter, but this is so pretty! Thank you for sharing! I’d love to have you visit our Pattern Party! Those with free patterns and templates are invited to link up from the 1st of the month to the 10th . See you soon!
