isn't that pattern stunning!
Well it proved a little harder than I thought. I had to wait until class to start cutting. It wasn't easy, but the instructor (Sujata) was awesome! Very patient (especially since I freakout when I'm flustered). She showed me how to cut properly (thank you, that was almost worth the price of admission). I was just not getting the 22" (when I kept seeing 20 or 21") side of things. I was so far behind I only got some of my top done, but that's ok since I was going to make a queen size. Now, I think it was 80 rectangles we cut for the 60x60, and 192 for the twin/full size, and with me (all gung ho) doing the queen its going to be over 380 ... so yes, I'm rethinking the size now.
After I cut out my rectangles (only taking 10 fat quarters to class with me), I finally got to put it on my batting and look what I came up with
not bad huh ... Sujata said it reminded her of Hawaii, hence my name - Palm of Paradise.
Now I'm ready for Hurricane Irene. I plan on quilting all weekend. I may end up with the full and make it lay as a diamond on the bed or keep going and do the queen. Either way this is going to take me a good - I teased the instructor in class and said 10 years ;o) Well, I can always finishing sewing the top, frame it, and hang it on the wall ;o)
Either way, where I'm standing now I may be a one quilt wonderer ;o)
