When I saw it in the magazine I thought they had displayed it in an old window, but after looking at it more closely I think it's just a picture frame - so now I'm on the hunt for one at the thrift store that I can paint and distress before using it. I need an 18" x 24" frame but can't decide if I want glass in it or not.
This shows the back of the quilt - lots of bulk there with the seam allowances folded over - which is why it won't actually be quilted. I don't even think I'm going to take the papers out - the stiffness will be helpful while framing it. I kind of envy Kathy - of Kindred Quilts. She's just starting this same design so stop over and see how she's doing.
Now I'm making fussy cut diamonds to sew along with the Temecula Quilt Co. I've got quite a few of them made, but I'm not sure if they'll all actually be used since I don't know how they'll be sewn together yet and I don't know if they'll all play together nicely. It's been fun learning to look at fabric a little differently for this project. And since there is so much waste with the fussy cutting I can't quite bring myself to buy fabric that costs $10-$12/yd - so I've been shopping at JoAnn Fabrics and Hancock's for potential pieces.
