Considering that it is hand piecing, I have been whipping through this “Wheel Of Fortune” Quilt. I completed the purple and orange rings while I was on Sewing Camp, last weekend. Since then I have done a little more each evening, and have made it just past half way, with the brown ring.
A really interesting pattern emerges from ring 4 (orange) to ring 5 (brown). Unlike the previous progression, where each pair of squares leads to three diamonds, (yellow to purple) some pairs of orange squares lead to three diamonds, and some lead to two diamonds. I decided that each pair of diamonds should be made of the same fabric, to highlight this pattern of 3, 2, 3 on the brown ring.
Once I have completed the 5th (brown) ring, I am going to make the next ring, of squares, with the dusty pink fabrics you see being auditioned here. The ring of diamonds that follows will most likely be green, but I reserve my right to change my mind – after all, that’s part of the fun. Usually I design things on paper and tend to stick to my plan, but not this time. I am not even sure how big I will make it.
Do you tend to change you mind as you make things, or are you one to stick to a plan?
