A while back I came across this post by Kathie. I immediately fell in love with these complicated looking blocks. Following her link over to Patty's , I see more fabulous blocks and hear the back story. After that I was hooked. I quickly ordered the magazine ****Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine Volume 16 #3**** and decided that while I had the passion, I didn't really have time to add yet another quilt into my list of current projects...then I realized my passion would be easily quenched with just four lovely blocks. SO that's what I set out to do! Working slowly, I saved the progress for just me...ala Tracey and her big reveals...my finished Blind Man's Fancy top!! 52" x 52"
Even though it is completely done in 1800 CW reproductions, you wouldn't know it from the colors. I wanted bold, bright, kookie and loud mixed with a dash of beautiful tried and true!
I love how it turned out, I love the size, I love the colors. Hubby loves the graphics of the blocks.
*** OMG!! I just realized I switched the colors on the outer flying geese border! The pink should be on the outside points! LOL! Oh well, no WAY am I re-doing all those. Plus I like it fine this way...floating pink triangles!!***
Now... back to the machine and for some swap blocks for 4 lovely gals who have waited patiently for them, while I toiled away at this burning passion. Hopefully by this weekend it will be quilted and ready to take it's place on the wall.
