I have been working on “Camelia’s Kaleidoscope Flower Garden” for a few days. Yesterday, I pieced eleven blocks. Today I’m cutting out and piecing the sashing and cornerstones. I accidentally arranged the blocks incorrectly. It’s amazing how different the wall hanging looks. Which layout do you like best? This is a good lesson for future reference—layout out blocks in a different manner and see if you like it better. I also discovered that it is helpful to take a photo of both layouts and study them on your phone or computer.
I had a thought about chain piecing all of the sashing and cornerstones (the rows that go in between the block rows) and decided to give it a try. It worked out well! I guess this technique could be called “the mother of all chain stitching”.
What new quilting ideas have you tried that worked out well?
