American Indian Kaleidoscope
I was looking for some fabric for a different technique when I found this fabric. Both blocks are made from the same piece of yardage. The look is totally different though.
I made these using the Marti Michell ruler. The first time I used this ruler I had a big wad of disaster sewn up all nicely. I threw the piece in the garbage in disgust. The ruler was hung out of the way. ("yeah, I probably won't be doing that again - oh the wasted money for that ruler" , I thought.)
Things change, we develop better sewing skills and (if we are - smart, brave or maybe stupid) we try again. I am glad I tried again. I am thinking of making two more of these and making a table runner or maybe make a BIG four patch out of them and stick it in the middle of a lap quilt. Only time will tell.
If you are looking for the entry for the zipper pouch, go to the March 23rd post and comment there. It ends tonight (Saturday 3/27)
I just saw that another blogger is taking her ZenTangle doodles and making art quilts.
I have a few that I could do that with. How about this one?
or maybe this one?
I am not exactly sure how to do it though.
