I’ve been wanting to make my mom something with the pretty Daisy Pat in Robin’s Egg from Sandi Henderson’s Meadowsweet II collection since I first saw it. She loves yellow and daisies, so it’s perfect. I haven’t seen a lot of projects made with this fabric line in this colorway, which surprises me.
I saw this on the Fussy Cut blog from Angela, so I used the Meadowsweet II fabrics and some yellow Kona cotton to make a pillow. The block pattern is called Arkansas Crossroads, and the scrappiness of it appealed to me. Don’t ask me why I ended up having the solid yellow pieces in squares rather than the bigger rectangles that I could have used–it was late at night and I forgot to think ahead. I didn’t take the time to look up the pattern, I just winged it.
I quite like the Arkansas Crossroads block, and I think it would make a great quilt sometime. If you would like to see a great free pattern with this block, check out this great list of block patterns from a place called Quilter’s Cache.
Is this picture a little better? The lighting wasn’t great when I took the pictures.
This was my finished project for Amy’s One Thing, One Week Challenge. I also made a wallet for myself, and it turned out okay. I made up the pattern, so there are a few things that I would do differently next time. But it works.
