I was playing in the sewing room over the weekend as I just had a few minutes here and there to sew on Sunday.
I've been drooling over these kaleidoscope quilts at Elaine's blog. Then Lori has started making some blocks, too. I remembered buying Marti Michell Kaldei-ruler about 5 year ago, so I dug it out. The top blocks are from the Marti Michell ruler. I appear to be pinwheel challenged! and the rings don't exactly line up...oops!
Then as I was putting away another pattern book, I found a tutorial from Starfishy's blog. She calls them Octagon Flowers and I had a smaller kaleidoscope ruler like what Starfishy had used. Those are the middle blocks. The piecing is a little better but still not perfect matches by any stretch of the imagination.
Last up are a few more test squares from Cluck.Cluck.Sew.'s Easy Double Hour Glass tutorial. I'm thinking of making this one in scrappy blues/whites.
Time to put the *play blocks* away and concentrate on my goal for this week! The FAB Challenge is calling my name! :)
