Love is…

 Drawing on one of your favourite prints ever so you have a unicorn instead of a horse for your unicorn-obsessed daughter…

Uni uni uni unicorn

Fussy cutting your favourite prints ever and thereby sacrificing parts of the sweet print just so your daughter has her favourite sections included in her quilt…

Pink Star

Paper piecing 8 sections to make one star block because you can’t figure out how to make the design not paper pieced but you love the star design….

Planning to make 12 of these stars, or maybe more because the fussy cutting is so delicious….

Green star

Removing the paper from all these blocks, one piece at a time….

Wee Wander. Stars. 3 year old daughter. Lot of love. Not necessarily in that order.

Love. That’s all.

  1. I love your stars! And what a great way to show off those sweet prints. As much love involved I think as making Star Wars blocks :-)

  15. Oh my goodness makes me wish my daughter was 5 again so I could do this. As I have great grand children it is not a wish I think is even at all possible. But the 4 year old great grand daughter loves horses so is an idea.
