Nine Points instead of eight
I can see how seven or six arms can happen, but nine???
(OOPS! Ten, I see by a better counter than I am)
I posted this photo of a top listing dangerously to the left
a few weeks ago. I think the problem is she kept adding triangles
as she created strips, "increasing" as in knitting.
Not a good idea.
I have been collecting photos of Out-of-Control quilts for years and now I am posting them in the left hand column. Scroll down to see the Out of Control Quilts box. I'll change them when I remember---about once a week.
This late 19th-century quilt is from Merikay's collection.
It appeared in the article I did years ago.
A reader suggested I call these Quilt Wrecks
(See the famous Cake Wrecks blog here: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/)
But Wreck implies a disaster. Often these quilt wrecks are happy accidents.
I've always felt I had little control over how things were going to turn out. I usually have a plan, but as novelists sometimes say about their characters, the quilt takes over--- it's out of it's creator's control.
I can relate.
