So here it is at last, photographed in natural, albeit dwindling, light and obligingly undulating in the breeze. Using Inklingo made cutting of the shapes perfectly uniform and in my parallel existence I am sewing this all by hand. Many of these blocks are hand stitched and I love the way the seams are flat but in real life I am a machine jockey. I had a the colors in mind, but also went wildly astray as I am wont to do-which also meant that I sometimes did not cut as carefully as I should have (picture me like Edward Scissor hands at my cutting table, scraps flying) and there are some corners that are a wee bit not so pointy. But I think once it is quilted it will not be an issue.the last one is the blocks on the wall before they were rearranged which makes a huge difference. The fabrics are mostly handy dyed and batiks with a tiny bit of other toile like fabric.
