He now has his "stash" of left-over wood bits, despite him swearing he'd never stash his wood like I stash my fabric.
If you have never made this version of a Kaleidoscope, the numerous settings and color placements offer many are variations. I fiddled on Quilt Pro, but still needed to actually DO it with real blocks. Here are just the brown cornered blocks.
Here are the beautiful RED corners.
And now I have 15 blocks made of needed 35 (5 x 7) , so I have to come up with something clever for the outside rows. I don't have enough of the creamy check to make the same blocks so will use what I have for half blocks and find another darker choice for the outside wedges. (Clear as mud?)
These blocks are coming together so well - each one sews together well, lays flat, etc. I spun the center seam. The phone book paper is still on the string wedges.
New subject ... You know how, when you come home, you always look to see there are no police cars, no blue lights, no trouble happening at your home? Yesterday, after grocery shopping this is what I saw!!! My entire street was blocked by police cars, EMS, and fire trucks! There were some heart palpitations for a few seconds. A car fire! I couldn't get TO my house via the normal route- This poor guy was just coming home from work, and parking his car between snow piles, as I was leaving for groceries - I noticed how tired he looked, poor guy, and when I came home his car was burnt to a crisp. He was OK. This yard is next to our garage.
