My two friends came over yesterday for a day of sewing and I decided to experiment with something I saw on the internet. It turned out to be a failure because of my choices of fabric. I still have 10 strips on the bottom to sew on.
The two fabrics in the center are too close in value. The large beige leaves in the brown print blended into the zebra print in the piecing. Also the shape of my template wasn't curvy enough.
To see how to make this, put Interleave quilt into a Search and it will bring up many photos of succesful pieces as well as Lorrie's blog post that is a tutorial. There are other blogs that will come up in the search too and they show the pieces they made. It is a very interesting concept and I want to try it again with some better value and color choices.
