I thought I'd get back to talking about my progress on this quilt I'm playing around with and I realized I don't have a name for it. Any suggestions?
When we last talked about it, I said I'd show you how simply it goes together in rows--I think those of you who haven't seen the pattern in the magazine or anywhere else will be amazed that there are no Y seams!
I've sewn together the four rows (or columns--whatever you want to call them) on the right and I've separated the rows (columns) in the center so that some of the design wall shows through and you can see how the pieces go together. You DO have to do some piecing on the bias and you have to be careful to line up the seams and keep your pieces in the right order, but there isn't any set-in piecing. (One of the Kims asked in a comment whether I've pressed the seams open or pressed them to the side--I've pressed them to the side so far, but I'm debating--the only bulky part is the "bulls eyes," and so far they're laying flat enough that I think the eventual quilting will take care of any little bit of puckering.)
Here's a close up:
I've had to stop sewing things together and start piecing more triangles because I had this idea that I wanted to have what look kind of like rows of "fans" at the top and bottom of the quilt (which will actually be the SIDES, if that makes any sense!) and I didn't have enough already made--
And then I have another idea for the sides (which will be the top and bottom), but I'll have to show that to you later when I get to that point.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer them. Thanks for checking in!
