Using two different collections of Inklingo, I made these 2 Seven Sisters blocks to get a visual of just how much difference 1/4 inch would make in the various pieces.
The blue and white is the beginning of a blue and white Seven Sisters quilt that I will make using 1″ shapes. The orange and blue? Well, that’s undecided for now — I’m playing with the idea of doing maybe 6 more of these blocks, putting an applique border of some sort around them and that will be a small wall-hanging. One thing is for sure — finer fabrics, such as hand dyes or batiks are the best option for the smaller 3/4″ diamonds. The blue and orange fabrics are wonderful but are a bit thicker than a batik and made for a bit of a pressing adventure!
