A few finishes

Image
Really happy to finish this one.  Here is the strange story of how this one came about.  I bought a quilt kit on Craftsy a while ago for the pixelated eye. Not to make the eye quilt but because it was on sale and there was lots of Kona fabric in the kit. I got the kit and sat on it while I designed this simple "eye" quilt on graft paper using up some scraps and using the big piece of Kona Snow that came in the kit. I cut this all out and sewed it together and I had a ton of fabric left in the kit. I decided to go ahead and make the pixel quilt anyway. 



The back of my designed "eye" is the pixel eye!! And then guess what? I still have a bunch of Kona Snow left from the kit so I have already cut it up and sewed into another whole quilt. That one I hope to finish soon.

WIP - swirl

Image
Not quite sure what I am doing with this improv swirl piece.  I was just so excited that I could improv it around and around. I made it to a size I thought was big enough and then wanted to sort of swirl out  of it. It reminds me of a fabric corsage. :)
I think this is the better direction but I have to set it aside and stew on a it a bit. Any comments or ideas are welcome...finish as is ?  For now I am just pleased it lays almost flat!!
