For this quilt, instead of using templates and a pencil to mark my pieces I used my rotary cutter and rulers to make fast work of this part of the process. I used the Triangler ruler by Anka's Treasures to cut out the triangles, and calculated the corner pieces. I had an enjoyable afternoon putting pieces on my design wall and rearranging them until I cam up with an arrangement that I liked.
Here are the nine blocks sewn and ready to be assembled. I figured out my borders, then added the first round. I ended up with a point that was cut off pretty badly. I'm not too much of a perfectionist about this, a few threads off isn't bad, but this one was definitely off!
I took out my stitching for a couple inches before and after the point and adjusted my stitching line on the point so it looks a lot better now:
I finished sewing the second border on and called it done:
I quilted it with three lines 1/4 inch apart around all the circles I could see. I added some angled lines in the same way in the outer border and bound it with the bright orange to finish it off:
Autumn Glow Wall hanging. As much as I love it, I have an abundance of fall quilts! I am inspired to do more playing with kaleidoscope designs after making this, it's sure a lot easier with today's tools! Thanks to Island Batik for providing the lovely fabrics for this challenge, and the inspiration Several of them look like they are from the Dotalicious line - fun prints that work for a variety of projects. Make sure you keep a look out for these at your local quilt shop!
