I started working on this quilt a year ago. And never finished it, it seems that my inspiration dried out. Its current dimenstions are approximately 1m x 1m (the widest parts of the quilt). The problem I had was its octagon shape, and I wanted it to be rectangular when finished (the final dimensions should be 1,60m x 2,00m). I simply had no idea what to do with this octagon and how to fit it within a rectangle shape. It would be petty to leave it unfinished, since I like the design very much. Any idea, anyone? LAST EDIT: I added one more image (fifth in a set), with two ideas how to finish this quilt – both provided by Olya_Boieru (member of the site). I think I’ll use the first one. LAST EDIT: Inspired by Olya’s suggestions, I made a sketch for my quilt (image 6 in a set).
Olya_Boieru for her great ideas!
