Creative Visualization

Just when you think everything's been done that can be done in the way of piecing quilts, another idea comes floating down the stream. Check out the cover photo of the "Coming and Going" (get it--two sides, you can look at one side coming and the other side going) quilt on the Quilters Newsletter April/May 2011 issue above and you will realize it is composed of the Cathedral Window pattern. By taking this pattern and piecing each of the sides, patterning opportunities are endless with just this one pattern. You can view the photo below to understand the process of strip piecing the initial squares that make up the circular "pancake" blocks. or contact QNM for the full pattern for the pictured quilt. Now set your minds to studying on other blocks that you might piece to change the entire look of a quilt!
