Paisley presents the C&D Wedding Quilt
The central panel of each block is an octogon pieced with 8 triangles which have been rotary cut from a series of larger fussy-cut octogons. It's a bit fiddly, but the kaleidoscopic effect was worth it.
This quilt used up just about all the blues and light colours in my stash, plus making a dent in the collection of florals. Despite this, the stash never seems to get any smaller.
Begun in January 2005, the piecing was finished over Easter 2005. Quilting was begun and then put on hold while the S&T2 quilt was completed. The quilt was finished in week leading up to Christmas 2005.
