This is a great 3-D block. Just imagine the possibilities depending on the color and values you use.  

Here are the last embroidered details for your hand stitched Mandala. You did it! Congrats!

Kerby Smith (Show 702: Quilting in the Digital Age) had a discussion with Jenny Bowker (Show 1804: Quilting Outside the Blocks) regarding adjusting the tension on your sewing machine. What do you do when the factory setting isn’t giving you the best results? Jenny shared with him a simple tension test you may want to try. 

The test will help you understand how to adjust your thread tension to get balanced stitches. And it lets you know where to change the setting for optimum results. It works with all sewing machines.

Quilts of Valor® is having a block drive. The block is a Friendship Star with a pinwheel center (12" finished). The purpose of the national block drive is to give individuals or groups who wish to make just a few blocks, but not assemble a quilt, have their block(s) in quilts made across the nation. These blocks can be assembled in many ways into a QOV.

Sarah Bond's Ribbon Quilt, quilted by Carol Heisler, won the eQuilter Quilting Excellence Award at QuiltCon 2018. Sarah challenged herself to use every color in the fabric line at the same time. She writes, "Sometimes you make the quilt. Sometimes the quilt makes you."

In 2013, Ella & Pitr were street artists that were allowed to go into abandoned buildings and create art. Their approach and illusions really take you outside the box and into one of their frames. Take a look at an example below and then click to see more and how they did it in the article, "Playful Anamorphic Illusions of Life-Size Picture Frames" by Pinar for MyModernMet.com.
