This first challenge for the 8th season is inspired by the number 8. I googled "8" for inspiration and saw the bagua, which is an 8 sided, 8 colored symbol with a yin/yang at the center. A long time ago, I put out an applique pattern for yin/yang and it's fun to do, so that became my project. I used the harmony pattern enlarged 140% and figured out how to make an octagon out of triangles for the background. The binding was done by trimming the background fabric after quilting to 3/4" larger than the quilt and then folding over twice.
I posted a few process photos on instagram as I went. There you can see how at home the finished quilt is on my wall too. The finished piece is about 12" square. Made in Spokane, WA, USA
