A new Toran

     I have been string piecing along ready to get enough blocks to make a Toran, (p. 30, in case you missed it). Finally, I was able to piece it together. I do not think I will make a border. The blocks were trimmed at 9", so the finished blocks were 8 1/2". I have more details and process photos on my blog. I made the cuts a bit curvier as I wanted a wavy flow. It was a lot of fun!

  4. Linda, Spectacular quilt! It does not require borders. As Ann said, it has a look of streamers fluttering in breeze.

  5. I love the way you've used color. I can see the 'fluttering' too.
