Been having some troubles with the Ninja Star quilt (the Double Pinwheel bock wasn't lying flat---finally figured out that one of my triangle templates wasn't square and it was messing things up)...so I've been designing a little to keep myself from going absolutely insane over it. Besides the Wind Waker stained glass wall hangings (which I realized have at least 10-12 different colors on each of them), I came up with a couple Irish Chain variations. Nothing really special, but interesting none-the-less.

Both are very neat. Love the second one especially.

Those both are really nice! I can't wait to see them in a quilt. Are you going to do them yourself or are you going to have someone help you so you can write up the pattern?

they're both very clever!!! :P i don't recall ever seeing anything like either one.

i especially like the second one, also. not only is it unusual; not only does it open up so many possibilities in terms of color, value and combinations of both; it's an awesome design for a new quilter. offers up many opportunities for skill building, and would look like a pro's quilt when done.

hats off to the Flying Goddess!!! :P :P :P :!:

Nice work, Goddess. I like the modern art one better (I've always been known as the oddball :roll: ). It reminds me of the op art movement of the early sixties. Try using the bright hopes block in an Irish Chain. I think you'll like the way the weave patterns work out (I did anyway). It's an easy block that looks quite hard and has a lot of visual impact. Isn't it great how designing can be such a stress buster? 8) Keep it up, you're doing great.

Wow! I love both of these.
Will you publish these patterns?
I want them!

Yes, I know, I have more patterns than time. :-o
One day that will be reversed. :lol:

You are an amazing designer! I would never call these designs "nothing really special." These are both awesome patterns, you are so creative! :D :D :D Keep designing, I love what you come up with! :D :D :D
