Dark Side of the Moon

I love classic rock.  I was browsing rock album covers and came across a Pink Floyd album cover done in paper piecing.  Awesome!

This is my version of Gaya's Dark Side of the Moon (shown here and available for free download also).

I won't lie.  It was fiddly and time-consuming but I like how it looks.

Cake and chicken - mmm!

I've been enjoying sewing lately.

For Christmas I gave out sewn birds in pretty fabric. Pictures to come.

I completed another paper-pieced quilt square. The pattern is free from winnowing.com

Right now the cake slice may look strange or elongated at the bottom but all four sides will be covered (sewn over) when the next pieces are joined to it.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have recently joined Pintrest. It can be a great waste of time but I've also found inspiration on the site. I look for cute or interesting projects to do, like the Little Chicken Bean Bags. Super quick, easy and so cute! (I added tail "feathers" embellishment. It's filled with small tapioca.)

Happy crafting!
