I thought some of you might be interested in how this quilt comes together. I am working on Looking Glass, a Miss Rosie pattern. When I studied the pattern photo, I had a difficult time picturing how this top was going to be assembled. Basically, there are two blocks that make up the quilt. A nine patch and a second block consisting of a rectangle of background fabric and a three patch strip.
Here are some photos that will help you see how the magic happens.
Start with one of the nine patches.
Surround it with four of the secondary blocks (which have red and blue squares that match the fabrics in the nine patch block).
Add in four random nine patch blocks and you have your basic block unit. Picture the quilt top made with 13 of these large composite units and you have your Looking Glass quilt! Easy once the pieces fall into place, isn't it?
And believe me, easy is what I wanted after my last couple of more challenging projects. I highly recommend Looking Glass for an easy to construct project that is much more complicated looking due to its creative layout.
Looking forward to a couple of half days of sewing after a grueling work week. I may even slip in a pool time play date with Eva and some friends. Hope your week is going splendidly!
