mellow yellow

patchwork snowball

Finally settled on a design I’m happy with for the doll quilt swap. The yellow strip patchwork is paper-pieced and then combined with Kona cotton in Ash.  I really like how calm the yellow and grey are together, despite being contrasting colors.  I’ll probably just stick to the ash for all the sashing and maybe throw in a snowball in a contrast color, like so:

Completely unrelated, anyone have any ideas on the identity of this plant?  The previous residents of our place left behind a plastic pot filled with dirt, which surprised us by sprouting this pretty plant a few months ago.

    I really like your snowball blocks! They remind me a bit of paper lanterns. I have no idea about the plant–sorry!
