Here is what I was referring to in my last post about my recent applique attempt. I have been liking small projects that I get to put to use quickly after starting them and these hit the mark at being very quick and easy. Turned out fairly nice. I am most definitely going to make a few more in assorted colors. I love all things owls and these are adorable. I found the pattern at Fabric Depot but I think you can find them online to order from Legacy patterns. Their web address is www.makingalegacy.com . I also will be making some more of this next potholder pictured below here. The pattern was just instructions from a craft warehouse free pattern sheet and I embellished it with a paper pieced bear pattern that I bought from eQuiltpatterns.com for 99 cents.
Now that I've finished these I must get started on the baby quilt I've been procrastinating doing for too long now. The baby is due May 10th so I just can't put it off any longer. Baby's mom, Brittney requested to have safari animals. I love to paper piece and can do a nice elephant, girafee and a lion. It's just not a jungle quilt without a monkey and have been wrestling with how to accomplish one that I like. So after much thought and designing I am going to attempt something new. Yikes!!!! I am going to try to put together a flip-stitch -quilt as you go project. It is also going to feature cuddle fabrics and the animals are going to be a combo paper piece and 3D creation I saw on YouTube. I'll post my progress as I go and hopefully it will be a success. Hope you are enjoying your week and are seeing Spring all around you and in your step!
