    I made God's Eye yarn wall hangings for my two older kids years back and a few dozen Christmas ornments too.

    I have made one, and plan on another with black and white for the crayon challenge at our guild! It just may fit the bill!

    Look carefully at the pieces. Made up of HST and squares. You can see the seams if you look closely.

    I made 1 block a few years ago, and that was enough for me, it is a beautiful block but I didn't have the patience for more than that 1, maybe I should try it again. I have grandkids now so I have learned patience.

    I made this block before I really knew what I was doing. It was fun to do as long as you keep everything organized. Unfortunately I used the wrong colors and hated it. Gave it to nursing home where it was loved.

    I made this one. Want to make 2 for my DS & DD + 3 for my brothers as wall hangings. Every pattern I do is PP! They do make up 16".
