I saw that Ricky Tims has a new book out:
I started out with a bundle of my favorite colors, the jewel tones:
I was already in love with this color palette, so I decided to downsize the overall quilt and hopefully get by with fat quarters. (Risky, I know.)
I drew up the design on freezer paper, following Ricky's directions, and assembled the first set of strips:
I haven't sewn any of these wedges together yet, but I can see that with this quilt, accuracy is EVERYTHING. This is not a quilt where you can rush, and I didn't. I really took my time when sewing the strips but it was still a challenge.
I'm a bit nervous about how this will turn out, and wondering if I will be able to show someone else how to do it. At the quilt shop, you have to try and offer classes for a wide range of abilities. This would definitely be considered "advanced".
