K-5 - Fractured & Frazzled Flowers


This is K-5 Fractured and Frazzled Flowers. The title came from the fabric, design and the goofy way that I quilted it. Just have to finish sewing on the sleeve and the label and it's done. I'm waiting for the next football game :-) Also added a close up so you can see what I mean by frazzled...


I had enough leftovers from cutting my strata to make another star/kaleidoscope. Yikes, this is addicting. 

I also have Mariner's Sunset on the HQ-16, partly. So it is going to get finished, but it is 101" wide so will take some time to quilt. The water needs more rocks yet.This is only my drawing since I cannot get far enough back from the quilt to take a picture. When it is finished, I'll take it outside for its photo session!

Another terrific finish!! I didn't realize the Mariner's Sunset was so large. Have fun with the quilting!

wahhhh! I want to get addicted also! Too much other stuff ahead of that quilt, in the queue! But I DO have the book - one step at a time!

Yours is stunning! What fun, especially when the whole thing does NOT have to be Queen Size to be gorgeous!

These kaleidoscope quilts are based on Ricky Tim's method... he has a book or this can be seen on TQS, I think. Not difficult and each one is a surprise! The islands are now on (looking better than my drawing) Next will be the leaves, but I'm going to quilt some of it first just to tack things in place. This thing is BIG!
