The pattern for this is from this lovely book, Liesels Funfecke....
Part of the Mandala is shown on the back cover.
I decided last minute to take this away with me, so I had about 10 minutes to grab some fabrics to play with. I had a few old repro fabrics, to which I added a few newer brighter fabrics. I threw them all in my roomy Bolga basket and I was ready to go!
I don't know if these fabrics are going to play well together, but I'm not sure I mind. I'm using the hand piecing method (rather than the english paper piecing as shown in the book) and it is so therapeutic just to sit down with a needle and thread and lovely fabrics. Next round done, now to get some stars made. xo
