    Such great colors and great design for a more modern effect. My daughter is wanting a new bed coverning. I will show her this when she visits today. I might be able to get her interested in helping to get it made. In fact, it would be great for daughter, granddaughter, and me to work on this. That would the work of three generations.

    The centers are sort of a "poor man's kaleidoscope". They're stacked 4-deep (instead of six or eight) and cut into squares. Then they're assembled like a kaleidoscope (same corner of the design in the center of the 4-patch). Then after a frame is put on, a triangular corner is added to each, and the corner is also cut from a 4-deep stack so it adds to the kaleidoscope look. (Clear as mud?)

    Someone asked if I could add some pictures of the individual posies, so here they are.

    Hello from Oregon (Albany). I started quilting in sections last year because I knew I couldn't maneuver a large quilt under my sewing machine. This is the 5th bed quilt I've made this way. If I had my druthers, I would probably quilt on a longarm, but in the meantime this is an acceptable alternative. It does leave a ridge where the extra seams go, but few people notice it unless they touch it. It's a lot easier to layer a quilt when it's in sections, and easier to use pieced backing.

    No, it's machine quilted. I have tried hand quilting, but so far I just haven't developed the skill. I really envy those who do it. Maybe I need more patience? The last thing I tried was a busier fabric, and I couldn't see the stitches, so I decided it wasn't worth the extra effort to hand quilt it. I hope to try again.

    That is one beautiful quilt! I have done the 4 patch posey, but this takes it one step further! I LOVE it! Have actually got fabric for my next one and I may try this approach! Great way to combine two complimentary fabrics! WOW! :lol: :lol:
