My Quip – Joseph’s Coat Update

Good Day,

Joseph’s Coat is well underway… All 42 blocks are completed, as are the inner border stripes and the outer border blocks. Our initial speculation of the dimensions of Joseph’s Coat is that of a Double Sized quilt. This of course may change as we progress.

We are working with and trying ideas for the actual quilting. As the composition of Joseph’s Coat is of 44 colors and it is sort of a geometric design, we are attempting possible quilting that will highlight the movement of color.

Here are a couple more images of a couple of the completed blocks.

Our completed blocks, each of nine colors, will be the base of our adaptation of Joseph’s Coat. Each of the 42 blocks will be individual and a unique assembly of varying colors. This is our adaptation of Kaffe Fassett's design X-Factor.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

I'm not sure if I have missed any, but enjoy,
