Batiks and the Circle of Nine
Dar also worked with the star shape but she took the time to add the 4 patch in the corners, which gave it a totally different look.. I took this photo while she had it laid out on the floor.
We put it on a design wall and you can see the subtle changes from just turning the spacer blocks.
Everyone had an opinion and it was interesting how just turning an out side block or the inside spacers could change the whole arrangement of the quilt.
I found Janet's journey in quilting inspirational. She has many talents and I am sure there will be more books in the future. But for now, this one could keep me very busy.. I am sure I have more blocks some where in my stash, to make another Circle of Nine,, but first I had better finish mine,, which I am calling Paducah Nine.. since I bought the fabric in Paducah...
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
