daisy quilt, part II

I have been working on my

Remember my delema over
the design with these fabrics?


I wanted some flower design
and some space for names.

So I kind of made my own design!
(well I was inpired by traditional patchwork!)

And because I was limited in some colors,
I had to do a lot of math!


A lot of time I used 2 1/2 inches as my square base,
but here I only had enough green for 2 inches.

Here is a block.


There is no actual triangles, just a lot of squares!
I finished the top,
I still need to quilt it.
So there will be a part III,
the return!

Miss C. went on a girl scout painting
adventure, she came back with this plate:


(parrot with 3 eggs in a nest)
I thought it was very good,
especially for a 5 year old!


It is only fair that I also share
Lego brick master's art work:



(inspired by "the starry night" by van Gogh)
I must say I love it,
not bad for a kid who will be an engenier!
He usually draw with a ruler and in black, grey,
blue and red!

Happy Creativity!
