Is there a problem here?

I just had to send this photo. All these blocks have the corners popping up reminding me of the Denver Airport buildings! Fortunately, they DO press back down flat, using a little bit of starch.
I don’t know what the protocol is for posting locations of amazing photos/videos, and I was going to put the link in this post, but when I did the 'fiddling' with the embedding (a new term to me), the video screen just popped up on my blog, so here it is. This video HAS to be one of the best! My congratulations to it's maker!!! The link came from Stashbusters, an on-line mailing list, regarding how to make Bulls Eye Quilts. As I checked the link to see what the tutorial was all about, I was astounded not only by the great tutorial, but a slideshow of 67 - yes, 67 slides of the most wonderful quilts I’ve seen - totally scrappy, each one better than the last. Give yourself some time to watch it all - you won’t be sorry. And these are all scrappy, using up our stash!

You are right about looking the the Denver airport. I don't really understand that design. I do loke the bullseye slide show how clever. Now I just might have to make another one.

That was a wonderful video! I love the different you can get from those circles. I've never made one and didn't have anyidea how one starts, but this was easy to follow. Thank you!

So in my ignorance..are all the edges left raw to frey?

Wonderful slide show. I didn't have any idea that there were so many possible settings.

How cool is that? What a quick easy quilt, and very striking - thank you for sharing that!
BTW - I always thought the Denver airport might blow away in a storm. Very, ummm, IINTERESTING design.......

Laurie Ann said...

Very cool! Kinda makes me feel like making one! But I am just not sure about those raw edges. Wouldn't it shed all over?

Mama Koch said...

I made one out of homespuns. Turned out better than expected, and no Laurie, they don't shed. Mine got softer and softer after ever washing.

(mine's on my blog if you want to go look)

Great slideshow!

Too funny about the Denver airport. I have to go there on business the end of October, and I'll be thinking about your quilt when I fly in!

Can't wait to see Rocky Road all finished. It's going to be beautiful.

This is a wonderful slideshow. Thanks for sharing it. Bullseye turned up on my to-make list a long time ago, but it is hiding among all the other ones I just have to make.
