Old UFO Finished!
I finished it last night. Here it is hanging from the washing line with the wash, a little windy today so was hard to get a straight photo of it. This quilt has only three fabrics in it. The blue, pink and a multi print of tropical flowers. It is a Kaleidoscope block made using the Bethany Reynolds technique called Stack-n-Whack.
I had a few hiccups along the way; I had to unpick the binding and do again as the fabric was very stretchy, my darning foot came undone while quilting- I have a nicely bent needle (photo above); and I didn't quilt all last weekend as planned, because my husband took me to Marsden Cove to watch helicopters chasing speed boats! (photo below)
I think it's your turn to do some work now, so I have turned a picture of the centre of quilt into a jigsaw puzzle. Here's the picture you are trying to re-create, have fun. (use your mouse to drag puzzle pieces about)
