"Flower Power" 48 x 48"
This quilt is rockin' the 70's, with polyester "burrs," denim sashing, and an old home dec print for the border.
Reminds me of my hippie girl days.
Many of you asked how much these blocks weigh. So I put one on a postal scale. Looks like about 5 ounces each. I'm sure it would be more if the "burrs" were made of cotton.
You also asked how on earth I was going to put these blocks together. Here's a photo of how the original one was done. (See last post.) I tried this, but it made the points stick out around the edges.
Here's another close-up of the original. I can't imagine getting all that fabric through my machine!
Looks like she stitched around and around, to keep the points from curling too much.
Since mine's a wall hanging, I don't think I'll need to do that.
I will put a back on it, maybe some light batting, and stitch in the ditch around each block for stability.
Yes, the quilt is heavy! These quilts would definitely keep you warm!
