I opted to use a jelly roll of Reunion by Sweetwater that I have had for ages (I don't even remember buying it) along with lots and lots of Kona Steel.
It took a long time. And it is huge. And there are 480 parallelograms, which almost drove me insane. I planned to make a big one for my own dad for Christmas but I think he is getting a lap size after dealing with this beast!
Here is A Zipper in Time:
|The front. I love the effect of the parallelogram "zipper" look.|
|Pretty cool, right?|
|The binding is mostly a solid red from stash (not sure the colour or brand) and this snazzy striped red print from Riley Blake. I think the pop of red looks awesome against all that grey.|
Since I'm writing this in the past (pre-gift) I will have to update you on his reaction!
