Ostrich Round Two done

Well, here it is, hung up on my fireplace mantel, with my collection of brass cats holding the upper edge. Looks a lot like the plan I drew up in EQ, doesn't it?


People have been asking if I paper pieced it, well, some of it was. The center compass and the teal/white kaleidoscope blocks were paper pieced. The middle round of log cabin pineapple blossom blocks were not paper pieced, and neither were the green/white connector blobs between the kaleidoscope blocks. I'll spend tonight picking out the paper from underneath them, uggh. It would have been easier to do it before I attached it between the borders, but with all the bias edges, it was less stretchy to leave the paper on every other block till it was attached.

If I'd scanned in my exact fabric, it'd look closer to the EQ drawing - all of the fabrics I used were already in EQ's palette. The only one that was really too dark was that marbled teal I used.

White setting triangles are next, to put the whole thing on point, so I cropped and rotated the picture so you don't have to tilt your head. *grins*

It sure will be a wonderful quilt.

I am hoping to get an EQ6 program. I would really like to try designing a quilt of my own. One day.

Wow, what an absolute stunner!!! It is so fun to see a quilt actually emerge from EQ. I usually just "play" at designing on EQ but never actually make the quilt LOL! Way to go.

Outstanding quilt. It looks like one that the precision in the blocks has to be exact. You do such pretty work. Couldn't help but notice the guitar... do you play?

Carolyn said...

Absolutely gorgeous! You do beautiful work!

Judy said...

It is wonderful! I like the colors you picked out - so fun to "see" what your quilt is going to look like on a program before taking a stitch! And paper piecing - I always have my DH sit down with a little spray bottle and go to work on all those tiny paper pieces, I know, I'm spoiled!

Cheers!
