tray mat is an early attempt at a 3D pattern. I found that the easiest
way was to draw it all on paper, cut out the shapes individually,
and using the English Paper Piecing method, sew the pieces together
in exactly the same order that they were on the original drawing.
None of the shapes could be used in a different position even though
they looked identical. My drawing could easily have errors in it,
but the logic was that if it fit together on paper then it could fit
together sewn - as long as the pieces weren't moved around.
next small wallhanging is familiar as the Inner City pattern.
familiar pattern - Baby Blocks.
next quilt was done from a Big Blocks kit by McCalls, now discontinued.
It was foundation paper pieced. The pattern is familiar as Double
Wedding Ring but because it was done over papers the number of pieces
in each arc are fewer, and they are 'sideways on' rather than standing
upright like a garden fence. It is 54inches square..
This one is worked over papers in
English paper piecing fashion, but with a move away from the ubiquitous
hexagon. It 'just' needs a final border, which means it will sit around
for a couple of years! Done in 9 blocks, it's difficult to see where
one block ends and the next one starts.
