Ok, my daughter is a bit of a hippy. She loves peace signs and tie dye.
I thought it would be fun to make her a quilt made out of different 6" blocks representing peace and balance.
Little did I know that it's hard to find free quilting patterns for that type of thing.
So I broke down and made my own.
I made this yin yang design by tracing some free clip art and creating an applique.
It turned out pretty well don't you think?
I like the feel of the black and white on top of the blue. It creates that feel of earth and ocean. I didn't originally intend to do that, but it works.
I'm looking forward to finishing the quilt with blocks of different appliques. I can't wait to see her face when she gets it.
This is going to be a 3 block by 3 block (total of 9 blocks) wall hanging for her room.
The only thing I'm having a bit of trouble with is what should the other blocks be? I'm already doing one with a piece sign, but I need at least 7 more blocks to finish it out. I don't really want to repeat a design.
Can anyone help me with more ideas? I want to keep with the theme.
Thanks everyone. Your help is greatly appreciated!
