The fabric i cut up for it ..Kaffe Fassett Kimono print...was yummy as it was so WHY did i cut it up? Whack it up would be a better word for it...the kimono pattern is one of my favs of his fabs...especially the orange one but this one was a great price $4 a yard off the hancocks paducah discount section...got it for a back BUT now its a front!! An upclose look at all that piecing...would like to say precision piecing BUT i am sure that as soon as i do that someone will find SOME place i did not exactly match the points
piecing all these long rows together so all the points will meet ...pinning pinning pinning...dont like to pin...at least not precise pinning...need to go to branums to get some more of those super thin glass head pins they sell because they bend if you breathe on them but do such a great job of pinning...This quilt is all my friend Judy's fault...she was cutting one out at our guilds winter quilt retreat...and i do love kaleidoscopes..so i had to try one...well hers is long since done ...mine is inching toward completion...maybe by next winter retreat?
the tedious block that this thing is made from...ONE BLOCK a jillion times...i think i made over 100 of these...i did count them but there were so many i lost countWhy do i call it TEDIOUS...because of pinning to death..all the fiddly little blocks...took days just to sew the pinwheels together...a couple more days to sew the strips together and goodness knows how long to sew the strips together...and LOTS of unsewing where the points decide NOT to meet...and then opening up all those little tiny 1 /4 inch seams and laying them flat...
sorry the pictures are not better...guess i should have signed up for the photo festival workshops!
