Someone expressed interest in another thread, so in lieu of threadjacking, here's my latest exercise in frustration
I'm done the orange, almost done the green, and onto the purple - Here's a photo of the orange
I've been working on it a few years. To give you an idea of scale, the larger squares are 6.5x6.5, and the smaller are 3.5 x 3.5 - the "small" pieces in the "small" square are sometimes .25" x .25".
And now the part where you'll REALLY think i'm crazy.
I'm doing it all using fabric I dyed myself.
And I'm hand sewing it all - It's paper piecing.
Friends are now joking that I'd better hurry up or else they won't be able to bury me in it.
All in all there's about 5300 separate pieces - between 20 and forty squares/rectangles for each individual colour.
Edited to add closeups of some of the patches completed so far:
Sorry they're a bit dark - someone borrowed my good flash.
Edit: To clarify: The first picture is the magazine's photo of the completed project. I'm nowhere near that far done yet
