Betty's Box Kite

 Well, You all may remember my conundrum- I wrote about it HERE. I was trying to keep the integrity of the designer's assembly instructions but it wasn't working at all! I redrafted it in EQ and sent her photos comparing my EQ and hers and the end result was very similar. I called, we chatted, and she agreed to revising the directions.  So, I started all over.
 I took a day all to myself,  before company came in,  and got this top put together! Woop! Woop!
My Electric Quilt drawing.
 And the quilt! Ta-da!


It's not perfect, but its done and winging its way to the owner!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Your solution makes so much more sense! Less waste and fewer seams to match.

  4. Interesting design formed with the pinwheel blocks and the log cabin blocks. Depending on the style of fabric used, it could have a very modern look or a more prim look if you used plaids, etc.

  10. It's hard to tell but did you end up sewing the blocks together in a diagonal and not frame the pinwheels.

    Congratulations on your negotiation and redesign.

  11. I probably would have tossed the whole project in the closet or maybe even the trash. You figured it all out and made a beautiful quilt.

  12. Yikes! Sometimes people get so excited with a technique that they don't see the simple solution right in front of them. Good call to change the construction. I've done pattern testing for a number of designers and some are glad to hear the feedback, and some not. All the "magic" blocks (nine-patch etc) usually can be made more accurately and effectively and quickly with more traditional construction methods.
