Mandalas, kaleidoscope patterns, quilt blocks... hmmm, all very similar, aren't they?
So I thought I'd design some blocks with this mandala method.
This wasn't real high-tech, mind you; pretty much I just scribbled for a while on the 45° pie template in Photoshop until I got something, or rather, several somethings, I liked. So these are the 'quilt blocks' I eventually assembled together:
Now interpreting that out to quilt blocks is a little trickier than I thought, but I managed to get one done. From this sketch
I've changed the colors around, since I'm making it in shades of green, with autumnal sort of accents in red, orange and yellow. Sort of the old M&M color scheme, but with an emphasis on the green (Eddie van Halen would be proud). The block is fifteen inches square, and sewn by hand.
