    And the maker of the green quilt also does pink...

    Oh, my, and not only the piecing she does, but also her use of everything good--value, organization, color, and immersion into a theme that is so awesome.
    I am so inspired!

    Oh, I'd like to replicate every quilt posted... so many truly wonderful things in the works of American, Australian, Canadian, British, French, Irish, German, Nederlander, Austrian, Swiss quilters... and so many more. So many unknowns doing such glamorous things these days!

    Whether simple or full of intrigue, Kudos to those who work in such beauty, even when monochromatic breaks out a new avenue of inspiration, simplicity, and sighs of beholders enjoying the eye candy of quilting shows, sharing and caring for recipients of these gems.​

    Crochet is #2 on this girl's agenda, and here's a new stitch called the braided puff stitch, and some how-to videos. The First, in English, Puff Stitches are in a Horizontal Row:


    You have the above primer, this is one that can be done now, except since it's in a foreign language (Spanish), you can go back to count at any time to do vertical rows:


    This Third one is a 6-point star repeated and starts with a puff stitch first row rather than using slip stitches and single crochet first row for firmness, it uses the puffs themselves.
    I bet koshergrl could figure this one out! :)

    Here is another approach in English so we can understand it well. It will help you with video #2.

    I was thinking about the outside border on this quilt and went to the source and found this picture, and it seems it may be somewhat textured by another kind of use with a sewing machinem which makes me realize her pattern is worth what is paid to do an exact replica of this lovely scrap happy star:

    While rambling around you tube yesterday, I ran into this pattern and am about 3/4ths finished with this textured hats - I seem to be lost in a world of texture lately. Ho hum!


    If you crochet traditionally, this hat is a good way to introduce you to "front post" and "back post." I've seen patterns using front and back posts, but never did one, it was just not easy until I saw the above video, which made learning the process easy as pie. I recommend it!
