Parisian Champagne Throw

ILC_August_small-56

Motifs built upon motifs create a whimsical and visually entertaining throw. Four small motifs come together, and are bordered to create a larger motif. As the squares dip slightly in the center of the side, these are left un-joined to create an open effect. The construction of this throw allows it to be a join-as-you-go that is still very portable.

Worked in a spiral of 6 colors and finished with a row of shell edging, this attractive design will capture the imagination of anyone who sees it. I can always get ideas from the garden, and a whirly gig twirling in the yard lead to the envisioning of this design.
