I know, I know – I said I wasn’t going to show each of these as I add their setting diamonds, but I can’t resist!
They really do look a bit different once they’re surrounded by the setting diamonds.
I am not picking favourites. It’s impossible.
When I want a little break from the butterfly kaleidoscope stars, I make a few more of these wonderfully tiny kaleidoscope stars. It’s hard to believe that the star points for these stars all came from the same fabric. It’s so easy to get these effects when printing on fabric with Inklingo. Just press freezer paper to the fabric, print and cut the shapes apart. In fact, it’s so easy that I find myself thinking of other shapes that might work for some kaleidoscope blocks. This could be dangerous.
Yesterday I had to go to a lab to have blood taken for some tests. I won’t say a word about how incredibly crowded the waiting room was, how long the wait was or the fact there wasn’t a window anywhere and I’m claustrophobic. What had me rather intrigued were the tile designs on the floor. There were pinwheels, square in a square and the design that was almost making me laugh out loud. What was it? Flying geese pointing to the little cubicles where the
vampires await – oops, sorry – where the lab technicians are. I saw one person across the waiting room who was watching me looking at the various designs in the floor. I wonder whether she thought I was completely losing my mind because of the long, long wait or if she was another quilter and had also noticed them.
See the red arrow? It’s pointing to the stylus Mr. Q.O. uses with the iPad to do the Baxtertoons. I thought Baxter was trying to hatch it. Mr. Q.O. says he wanted the iPad so he could draw a ‘toon himself. And thus this photo is named “Gimme the iPad.”
