What's old is new again. That's seem to be so true with quilt making. I had a guild member ask me if I knew about the tessellating pinwheels quilts made with the new Twister ruler. Since I'd previously taught the pinwheels class a few times, I knew of the technique which is the same technique as Square Dance by Martha Thompson.
Back then I wanted to make this quilt in queen size. I collected squares as I cut scraps during the last 6 years, but never got around to making the quilt. I've used the squares for other projects, but not for the intended use. So I got the squares and made a small block to test the directions since it's been so long. I got addicted and made 8 blocks. I then decided to make a larger panel. I haven't cut it out yet, but I now have a start on a queen size quilt even though its not exactly how I thought the design would be. That's okay as the whole point here is to enjoy the process.
Nov/Dec10 issue of Quiltmaker magazine. It's a really cool way to make these blocks. It must be some kind of "good scary" thoughts rolling around in Anita's head. If you haven't seen the technique, please get the magazine and try it. It's amazing how these blocks are created.
Drunkard's Path quilt. I'll put them up with some other crumb blocks I have around here. One day I'll make a very interesting crumb quilt.
