Stitching Side by Side: Diana McClun & Laura Nownes
Around the World
Asian fabrics were used for Origami Pinwheels.
TIP: Use a reducing glass to look at fabrics and potential blocks. Colors become diluted as they decrease in size, so it's important to see fabrics in the scale of the finished quilt. "Quilters will avoid disappointment if they take a little more time in the design process before they cut," Diana says. "You also have to be willing to sacrifice some pieces. Put them aside and make a scrappy quilt."
