Adam did such an amazing job with his piecing! It is very difficult to work in a circular motion. Adam did AMAZING!!!! I put this on rack expecting there to be just a little bit of wonky, wasn't I pleasantly surprised.......this was perfect.....no wonky! I loved making new space with the negative space and the awesome use of colors creating amazing contrast!

This quilt is really Amazing and I'm so happy with how it turned out. The big challenges that I had with this quilt were the helmet and the face. This was a large space to fill in and the helmet needed to still reflect that it is curved. You'll notice that some of the pictures were taken while the quilt was still on rack. This was just to demonstrate the challenge that I was up against. By using curved lines with in the helmet that could represent shadowing kept this from looking too two dimensional and with some help from Rachel and her husband came up with a plan for his face. Rachel really likes contrast so I used the red thread for the facial features, all except for the shadowing done under the cheek bones.

Check out Niraja's amazing quilt! This quilt is so mosaic! It is beautiful! For her quilt she ask for straight lines only and that is exactly what was done. I did however vary the widths of the line spacing just to give it a little more depth and interest. I think it is an amazing work of art!
What do you think!
Here it is! As you can see it was difficult to get the entire quilt pictured due to it's large size, but I think you get the idea of how this quilt looked.
