Behind the Scenes
Blanket Pattern Design
First, I needed a yarn that had sugary sweet colors for this palette. Scheepjes Softfun* did the trick. Luckily I had a huge amount of remnants that would work perfectly for this piece. Like painting with yarn!
Try not to drool when you see this next photo! Yarn makes me so happy. But seriously, are these colors not sweet as sugar?
When I sat down to design Spring Flatlay, I knew I wanted an unusual collection of flower blocks. I also wanted blocks that built on one another, so that you aren’t reinventing the wheel every time you make a new motif type. Several of the rounds are shared by all of the different flower motifs. I randomized the blocks in the way they might be laid out as flowers on a table for a flat-lay photo. The pink and yellow background is just the icing on the cake!
And here it is, y’all! The sweet border and joining method were so fun. I loved designing this one!
