What could be better than a unicorn quilt? Two of my favorite things combined. A search on Etsy yielded these patterns. Most of these are for paper piecing. Make a single block for a wall hanging or pillow cover, or make several and add borders for a larger quilt. Click the link under each illustration for more information.
Small unicorn head–this is a more ambitious project; you should be an accomplished paper piecer before you attempt this one.
Which is your favorite? Mine is the small unicorn head, but I’m not skilled enough to make that one. I’m tempted to try the pillowcase, though I’d make the mane in gray and cream rather than purples for a more realistic effect. I prefer real unicorns, with split hooves and goatees, rather than the fake ones that look like horses with a horn stuck on their foreheads.
Today’s prompt is to choose an impossible statement to compose a poem about.
a circle can’t have corners
in a forgotten corner she sits invisible
observing the popular girls
their circle an impenetrable wall
keeping her out uninvited
in first grade they were all friends
in seventh they are not
she is excluded
Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write a poem that plays with the myth of Narcissus.
I hear those blasted pipes, pipes
I turn and see Pan, Pan
With his horny head, head
And his hairy legs, legs
With their cloven hooves, hooves
I turn away and gaze at my love, love
His handsome face mirrored in the water, ter
Why don’t you return my feelings, lings
Your eyes seek only your own face, face
Could it be there’s nothing there, there
Just a shallow reflection, tion
A gift for all of you of a certain age.
