Further along the kaleidoscope

     Finally, I finished arranging the Organized Chaos quilt on the wall and took it down. I cut 9" freezer paper squares and ironed all the corner pieces and the sewn centers to a numbered sheet. Since it is so complicated, I am sewing the blocks into large 9 patches, then assembling the whole quilt. Although I was very careful cutting and sewing the seams, I had to trim off a bit to make them even after I sewed the corners on. Instead of being 8 1/2" unfinished, I had to go with 8 1/4", so the finished blocks will be smaller.
Final layout on wall
Ironing on 9" freezer paper and numbering each block.
All the pieces will stay together until I sew them. 
I am sewing the blocks into 9 patches to handle the seams
easier as they are fussy joins.

This is just gorgeous - and I'm making a note of your freezer paper method for when I make mine next year. Congratulations for getting to this point!!

Wonderful....the layout is a fabulous mind blowing journey in color. Great idea to deal with it in 9 block sections!

Wouldn't that be easier if it was paper pieced? It looks really nice.
