+ okay, so i was going to wait until i had the WHOLE quilt top done, but i’m just way too excited to wait! this is the second quilt that i’m considering entering in “the island”‘s quilt show this summer. the pattern is Dodekula by Ula Lenz, and geometrically, it’s a “stellated icosidodekahedron”. i knew i wanted to make this from the first second i saw the pattern. lucky for me, it’s paper pieced, and has no pesky Y seams! i am putting a different border on it than Ula, and i opted for a white background instead of black. i’m going to call this quilt “Refracted Light”. it’s currently about 22″ square, and when i’m done, it will be about 32″ square. i’m absolutely delighted with it so far!
