Unicorn Scissors Review

I've been the lucky recipient of these fabulous unicorn scissors, sent to me by Darn Good Yarn to review.  Aren't they fantastical looking?  

Disclaimer:  These scissors were given to me by Darn Good Yarn at no cost to me.
I was curious to see how well they performed.  Sometimes pretty things are great to look at, but not so great to use.  I was very happy with the comfort of these scissors and the sharpness of the blade.  

I've been using them for everything for the last month or so.  I used them to make new masks for my kids going back to school.  No problem cutting elastic and snipping errant threads.

I wound bobbins and snipped the thread with the rainbow unicorn horn.

I snipped quilting threads while working on my April Island Batik Ambassador project.  

I snipped my hand sewing thread while appliqueing this Mariner's Compass block to a beautiful green background.  And lastly, these scissors have found a permanent home in my English Paper Piecing hexie kit. I don't have a photo, but they fit perfectly inside the pink Hello Kitty tin that I use for my EPP supplies.  Yay for Unicorns!

Citrus Star Quilt Plus Three Cat Helpers

I've been working on my April Project for Island Batik Ambassadors.  I'm calling this quilt Citrus Star.  It's mainly made using the new Citrus Sun fabric collection.  For some strange reason, my cats are all seriously attracted to this quilt.  This is Ragamuffin, helping me with the paper piecing pattern.  

This is one of the long diagonal seams.  Aren't these fabrics just gorgeous?  I love that Sunflower print, and the colors ~ aren't they fabulous?

Here's a few of the sections pieced and ready to put together.

I decided to use Hobbs Black Cotton batting for this project.  It quilts beautifully and will be great for these dark fabrics.  Trail Mix approved.

I knew exactly how I wanted to quilt Citrus Star.  Mostly straight line quilting on my Janome Memory Craft, so I pin basted it.

In this photo, I'm quilting away and snipping a stray thread with theses adorable Unicorn Scissors from Darn Good Yarn.  They sent me these scissors at no charge, to write a review.  Stay tuned for that soon!

And for my final photo today, Sunrise, helping me quilt.  He's in love with this quilt.  Every time I get up he snuggles into the quilt.  It's adorable!  I think this one might be for him.  I finished quilting Citrus Star today.  I'm working on a few other projects at the same time, but hopefully I can get this finished up and post the final reveal soon.  Thanks so much for reading today.

Disclaimer:  The items used in the project were given to me by Island Batik and industry partners at no cost to me.
