Look at this quilt! Yes, you will note hands at one end of it, I did photograph it over the owner's head at quilt guild the other day.
Can you figure out how to make this block? So far, we are stumped about that here in Lawrence, Kansas....... If you don't know, we just may have to arrange another viewing and see if we can figure it out!
You have got me thinking!!! I keep staring at it and just can't put this puzzle together!ReplyDelete
I would love to make this quilt.
Wow, what a great quilt, I wish I had an answer, but maybe some will know. Love it.ReplyDelete
It was probably pieced by hand, which would make the parital/set-in seams much easier to complete than if it were sewn by machine. My guess would be it's sewn in rows going across the quilt. If you get another chance to look at it can you tell be the way the seams in the middle of the lights are joined? Very interesting, what can the owner tell you about it? LoisReplyDelete
wow! I am stumped...what do the edges look like I wonder? Was it stitched in columns? Interesting mystery.ReplyDelete
It is a great quilt, I was guessing hand pieced, too, wow.ReplyDelete
I am stumped, but agree that it must have been set-in. Even at that, it looks like a headache to sew!ReplyDelete
I am with Dave..partial seams and joined in horiontal rows! Cant wait to have a go at it..I love puzzles!ReplyDelete
it is kind of log cabin in rows, post a separate mail with schedule to the owner of this blog.ReplyDelete

I'm stumped as to how she's holding that over her head, if her hands are at the bottom!!! hahaha! Haven't figured out the quilt yet, either!ReplyDelete
I'd go along with the pieced in rows rather than block theory. I can't imagine how else it could be achieved. What a conundrum! If only we could see the seams.ReplyDelete
i think it's done with partial seaming. start the block with the square and a log. sew a log on either side, starting with the square end, but leave the other end at least an inch unsewn. add a log across the "square" end, then add a log along both sides, again leaving an inch open. keep adding logs until you have 4 added to the sides and 4 aded to the square. the final logs will be part of the "center" of the next block. draw it on graph paper.ReplyDelete
it's a neat quilt.
Let's have another showing! I would love to see the whole quilt. How wide are the pieces? I'm with Kylie, I would love to have a go at it.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying looking at your quilts and this one is most intriguing. I think it is probably a braided log cabin. Did you notice all the dark strips are cut the same length while the light ones are cut at different lengths? Would like permission to copy photo so some of my quilting friends can maybe help me figure it out. Thanks.ReplyDelete
I'm watching and watching! This is amazing!ReplyDelete
