Today I thought I’d share my original Magical Slice and Dice. This was the very first one I made and it’s really striking in person, it’s my very, very favorite. Unfortunately, after I wrote the pattern and started taking photographs for the cover I realized a black and white quilt just doesn’t show well for a cover photo, it looks kind of flat. So my Feeling Groovy (by Robert Kaufman) became the “star”.
And a few close-ups of some of the individual blocks.
As you can see, Magical Slice and Dice is a four-patch kaleidoscope but the uniqueness comes from how it is turned on point creating the set-in and corner triangles without ever cutting a triangle.
Here’s a picture of the cover photo.
You can see that the black and white quilt got relegated to the chair, Boo Hoo!
