    Quiltigami?

    Has any one ever tried Quiltigami. The art of fabric folding? This started out as a octagon about 6" across and this is what you end up with when you fold it to look like a flower. This may just be my next project. My sis in Michigan sent me a book on fabric folding and there are alot of neat ideas in it.But then again do I really need to start another project??? Yea why not.Thats normal for us quilters isn't it? Thats what everybody on here told me anyway.Ha ha I love this forum...

    Hi there
    I have the book somewhere. I had a hard time focusing on the projects when I got the book because of caring for my folks at that time. Hmm, wonder what I did with that book! Takes a mind of steel to focus for me. My brain is pretty much oatmeal.
    I love the look of these. With the roll you've been on, you will be a real whiz! Go for it!

      Oh, my, Blondie! I swear, I lost half my brain with the first child, half with the second, and was pretty much brain dead for the 3rd. (Even though the 2nd and 3rd came a minute apart.)

      This is a pretty cool concept, and I'll have to keep it in mind for later projects.

        I make some of my quilt blocks with 3-D features. Usually they are just prairie point type bits put in for other squares or triangles. It is kind of fun to have some surprises in the blocks. I'll have to see about that book.
        Thanks for sharing!
