Well, I have to say that this phase of the process was very intimidating. I was so afraid that I was not going to get the seams locked so that my two mirror pieces were just that - exact opposites.
Ricky Tims suggests that we don't worry about getting the whole length of the strata locked in and that was good advise because it just wasn't happening. But I was able to get the seams locked in for each piece and got all six pieces cut out.
Once cut, I opened them up right there on the cutting table to see if they did good and I think it looks pretty KOOL!! The only thing is that I have a hole in the middle and the picture in Ricky's book does not have the hole. I am hoping that the hole goes away once everything gets sewn together!!
Really does look like a kaleidoscope, doesn't it!!! Click on picture to see a close up look!!!
