GEESE HAVE LANDED
The flying geese from my last post have landed and are encircling Debbie's round robin. It is now on its way home to Arizona. She's planning to quilt some lovely feathers in the open space. I can't wait to see it completed.
This block is a Buddhist Pinwheel. The random look of the placement is actually very controlled. The light, medium, medium-dark, and dark colors are in a certain placement. The monks meditate while stitching this block. The strange color placement took all my concentration! No meditating here. In order to stitch this block, I cut the triangles and then made the hourglass sections. There was no way to quick-piece and have the color placement correct. The hour-glass blocks finish 3" and then the border brings the block up to 12".
This block is going into a small block lotto, and was requested by Tricia, the winner for this month.
