EXPLODED COLORS

Originally, this was a kit with pre-cut 2 1/2" strips and various sized squares & rectangle cuts. Each block was supposed to measure 10 1/2", but they didn't. Each block was inconsistent in finished size. WHY? I used spray starch on each fabric piece. The moisture, whether starch or water, caused the fabric threads to merge together causing the fabric to shrink!  So I made this an opportunity to modify each block to consistently measure 13" square. I added strips of black & white around-like log cabin style. I then turned each block, just a little, and cut them to 13" blocks. I then added fun sashings, inserting random skewed black & white skinny sliver strips. I stitched 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" colored pieces, alternating black, together for the binding. I think I like this better than the original pattern as it is now twin bed size and not lap. What do you think?

I had fun creating a large label with my embroidery machine.

I free motion quilted tons of different motifs all over with multi-colored thread. It's called grafiti quilting

This was the original-lap size pattern.
