Right away I thought of my favorite flower, the daffodil, and started looking for a paper-pieced daffodil pattern to use for my project.
I found a pattern made by Piece by Number in Craftsy's free patterns, and got right to work!
I hadn't done any paper-piecing in a long time, so that in itself was a bit of a challenge! It wasn't hard to get it all figured out, though, and I love how my daffodil turned out!
I decided to make this piece just the right size to sit on the little chest of drawers by our front door because it's time to add a springtime table topper to the living room decor!
That meant adding some borders and sashing to the daffodil block, so that it would measure about 10 x 18 inches. Somehow a little pinwheel and some polks dots snuck their way in, too!
I quilted this little piece using a curvy grid, and love the texture it gives!
The backing and binding are from this fun multi-colored dot.
And, if this little project looks familiar to you, this might be why -
I seem to be stuck on yellow and blue these days! (Sun, blue sky, green grass, daffodils - I'm determined that spring is on its way to Loveland, Colorado!)
