Hiding in Plain Sight (59″ x 34.25″)
A One Block Wonder Kaleidoscope Quilt
Pieced by Sue Hickman       Berryville, Va       10/2009

Pieces of Sue’s “Hiding in Plain Sight” quilt began as a “hand’s on” way to teach the ‘One Block Wonder’ kaleidoscope techniques in the spring of 2009 to the Shenandoah Piecemakers club. In the class, participants worked with stacks of 60° triangles that went into the hexagon portion of this quilt. After the class, Sue bought two more ‘repeats’ of the fabric to see what it would look like when isosceles triangles of this fabric were made into octagon blocks. The name, “Hiding in Plain Sight” refers to the many zebras in the original fabric that, like zebras in the wild, use their stripes as camouflage.

This quilt also was displayed at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXI in Hampton, VA in February 2010. This is both a juried and judged show.

This quilt showed at the 2011 Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show, held in Berryville, Va.

This quilt was one of the quilts showcased in a Solo-Artist “Art in the Halls” show at The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA from October 18th, 2016 through January 22nd, 2017.

Kaleidoscope Wave (44″ x 61″)
Pieced by Sue Hickman       Berryville, Va       Spring 2009

Blank note cards featuring this quilt are currently available for purchase in sets of four (4) for $12.00 by emailing Sue@Studio2724.com .

I am fascinated by the unlimited design options when using matching equilateral triangles of printed fabric. This quilt owes its origin to a blue and purple lilac covered fabric. The occasional light green leaf also adds interest. Each set of 6 matching triangles make up the hexagon blocks, but it is the layout of these blocks that created this Kaleidoscope Wave.  Whimsy added the partial lime green border and the blocks falling out of the design.
