I did this successfully and everyone loves it.

My baking went sorta like this.... sliced thin peices of ruby red grapefruit as evenly as possible.

placed slices on a cookie rack on top of a baking sheet lined with foil (so that the natural sugars wouldn't caramelize to the pan.

After about 2 hours at 200, I set them in a sunny window for a few hours. Then back into the oven and so on alternately all day. I didn't really think about it, I just wanted them to be dry and orange. I could tell where I sliced too thinly because those parts turned brown...

I have almost the same fabric as the exterior with slightly different colors. Did you get yours at Walmart?

no, I don't do the walmart thing.... I got it through www.jcarolinecreative.com, pretty reasonable pricing!

missmichigan- how did you make the blocks? did you cut everything out using straight lines, and then sew them together without squaring up the edges, and then square the blocks off with a template? 

I really like the effect of all straight lines but lots of different angles.  My first quilt (ok, my only quilt, but I'm working on a second one) was a magic tile pattern which has a similar effect of straight lines at different angles to each other (I'd post a picture, but don't have a digicam... d'oh!).

I used a 6" template after winging the borders around... I noticed in my later squares, I was more straight for some reason... but yes! I'm really happy with the overall effect!! thank you!

I'd love to see your quilt, too!

wow- that's so groovy!  I hadn't heard of gees bend until I saw your post- is this the website you were inspired by?  http://www.quiltsofgeesbend.com/quilts/

(for some reason, when I saw the subject header, my brain read "Bee Gees" instead of "Gees Bend"... I checked it out because I was really curious what a Bee Gees quilt would look like!  Smiley)


yep! that;s the one! Though back when I started working on this quilt there were tons more pictures on the site Cheesy

I can see the bee gee's connection, haha!

wow! it's very beautiful!

I wonder if some weight could be trimmed by using light weight calico cotton and smaller seam allowances for the patches as you go down the rows? That doesn't help your completed skirt at all, but maybe if someones else tries it. Or maybe a heavier cotton waitband with elastic + cording fro stability?

 I have a pattern for a tiered skirt for my daughter and I might have to try the patchwork method and see what happens!
