Anyway, back to quilting. The weeks before the surgery I went through my fabrics that I had put aside for stack and whacks many years ago and went through them. I put many of them in the "I'll use for backing pile as they aren't interesting enough" and then proceeded to cut up quite a few others into mostly hexagon triangles and four patches. I figured I could audition them and decide how they should go when I could again sew. The above fabric was the first one i pulled out. It has about a 12 inch repeat and I had about 10 repeats of the pattern. I decided not to do a kaleidoscope block as they only go together in one way. I did pile 8 repeats on top of one another figuring I could do two "posie" (or 4 patch) blocks with each set. I did a 3 1/2 inch strip and ended up with 72 posies which will finish to 6 inch blocks.
Below are some of the different versions of the block from one set. All the photos are with my phone and with them sitting on my lap in bed so not up to the usual standards.
This is one of the stacks and below are the two different arrangements I decided to use.
These next three are all the possible arrangements of one set of posies.
These next two are three versions of a posie. The ones below I initially chose but when I did this one, I decided I liked it better than one of the chosen ones below. I like them to look as different as possible even with a large focal point like the flower in this one.
