From the book Fantastic Fabric Folding by Rebecca Wat. This is the only quilt I have ever actually finished.

Very pretty!! I love the types of greens and blues you used. I know what you mean about finishing quilts, they sure take awhile! Great job.  Cheesy

How difficult did you find this process?  I have this book, and haven't "test-driven" any of her ideas yet...

I was fairly inept at origami when I started this quilt, so it took me a while a to understand how to fold the piece properly. After that, it really wasn't that bad. I had to tack all of the origami in place before I sewed it into the quilt, but honestly, it really wasn't that hard once I figured out what I was doing.

I adore the colors in this quilt!  How beautiful.  I haven't seen this quilting book, are there folds in the blue squares?  It seems that there is a design in the blue squares, but at first I thought it was a quilting pattern.
Finishing a quilt, no matter what size is a major accomplishment!  Congrats.   Grin

The blue pieces are actually a folded pinwheel. Unfortunately, it just doesn't show up that well.

Very cool!   I love origami, and have always maintained I'd never quilt -- it would take me 40 years... But now --- ? Grin
