20.4 Periodic Spiral Progress

October 9, 2011

The days are blurring by faster & faster every day now!

I really have to say I love football season for many reasons, one of which is that it’s one time I actually sit down & do some handwork of some kind.

So I’ve been working a little bit on my periodic spiral quilt in between football plays.

I will post some progress pictures here, some of which you’ve seen, some you haven’t.

I have 1 whole section to sew together yet, and one section that is still in rows.

Progress as of today Oct 9th, 2011:

The green section is still in rows, I have to admit sewing the rows to each other is my least favorite part.

Actually all the major colored sections are not sewn to each other either, it’s easier to transport when the thing is still in larger pieces.

This is still a pretty small quilt.  The size of the grey fabric you see in the picture is the size of a television tray, so this is going on the front of my studio door when completed.

The grey fabric will be cut down to ‘mock’ the shape of the spiral & the whole thing will rest on some black/blue hexagon batik fabric purchased in February.

Also, was considering writing the symbols on the quilt in silver pen, and this I may not do now – have not decided for or against it yet.

Here’s some (reverse) progress as I’ve gone along with this quilt.

  2. Wow, Darla, that’s pretty intense! I’ve never seen this version of the periodic table before. I’ve just caught up with your podcast, so was excited to see the pics. I can’t wait to see the finished project. Good luck with it.


  3. […] couple of years ago, I started off on a journey of tiny hexagons, sewn around batik scraps collected by some of my guild […]
