Winding Ways and new quilt.........

I probably won't sew any more of these blocks until Tuesday again since I have made them more than one day this week already.  They are on the double wall now so I can continue when I sew the new ones.

I started these blocks while my students sewed in the finishing class on Thursday.  There are 4 blocks with the same fabrics in them.  If you zero in on one fabric you will see it twice in the smaller size and twice in the larger size so there are 2 distinctly different blocks within one group of fabrics.  This takes a lot of concentration when putting them up on the wall but I find that to be fun where some people would find it frustrating.  I showed the pattern for this one here.

The winding ways quilt is looking really gorgeous! I love the way this design creates circles all over the quilt.

The Kaffe quilt is looking really nice, too!

Gosh that second quilt your sharing is such a complete thrill! Actually I said out loud here "whoa. what a trip."

The Winding Ways is fabulous, Wanda. It's just wonderful to look at and inspiring to contemplate. I love this one.

I love the circle illusions with the winding ways quilt.
The other one is quite interesting. At first look, I thought you had a new student that was really having problems. Then I read it and realized what I was seeing. ha ha.

I got the book for the second quilt, yours looks wonderful, I have to ask, is this a very hard block to do??? I have not even started the quilt I want to make with this pattern, I have been afraid to start!

I'm in love...think there will be two more quilts added to my wish list! Thank you for a lovely post! Happy stitching!

Wow Wanda, that new one is very interesting. I'll be watching to see it's development.

Your Winding Ways quilt is just mesmerizing. It would be a wonderful piece to meditate by! And I love the wonky patchwork quilt - very much fun. :-)

Both are wonderful! You really use colors in exciting ways!

I've also made some quilts from a Karla Alexander book, and had one class with her. She's very approachable, and would love to see a photo of your quilt.

Winding Ways has stolen my heart !

I had to enlarge your second piece to see that the squares were cut on angles . At first I thought my computer distorted the image. Of course I love it, as it looks like what I could have fun doing.

The WW is Wandaful so far. And the second one looks interesting. I will be following your progress on that one.

Like seeing the circles the piecing creates in the top photo and the winding way piecing looks like fun, also. Good job!

The winding ways quilt is gorgeous!
I am intrigued by the bottom quilt. Love the look of the crooked lines within the straight lines. Might have to try that one sometime.
