|...of course i had to redesign it.|
Once I decided I wanted to make this quilt, I wondered if there was a way to keep the overall look and feel of the quilt - to faithfully reproduce (most of) the blocks, but tweak the block placement to emphasize the "trip around the world" pattern at the heart of the design...
|Hello, circles and diamonds, light and dark...|
|solids and 9-patches, and X'es light and dark...|
|central motif (applique), asymmetrical, stars, etc.|
|Lightbulb. the blocks with a diamond motif could |
form a giant diamond and the X blocks could form a giant X.
At this point I was starting to think all my geeking out on this was starting to pay off.
