Use Long Magic Mirrors to Preview Block s

The photo on the front page illustrates viewing partial block repeats with the mirrors. It is much easier to “see” an entire block with the long mirrors by cutting out a few pieces and opening the mirrors to the appropriate angle. Like the first look? Sew a few pieces and look again for even more accurate view.

45° Kaleidoscope Patterns. Kaleidoscope is one of our favorite quilts for designing with mirrors. Find this fabulous quilt in Kaleidoscope ABCs along with pages of information on designing with mirrors. Both the quilt and the block below it are cut from border prints.

60° Triangle Patterns. Place the mirrors on a border stripe to see hexie block you’d get with 6 60° triangles.

90° Geometric Patterns. Square blocks like Diamond Star can be previewed the same way. Cut out enough pieces for one quarter of the block, arrange them in the appropriate design and position the mirrors at a 90° angle on one corner.

Circular Patterns. Any block that is made using symmetrical quarters can be previewed with Magic Mirrors, too. To repeat a circular pattern like Mariner’s Compass, cut a few pieces of each shape, arrange them in order and use the mirrors to “see” the whole circle.

Appliqué Patterns. You can also design appliqué blocks by cutting different shapes and arranging them on a back- ground fabric to represent ¼ of a block. Hold the mirrors at 90° angles for viewing. Rearrange the same pieces to see what other patterns appear; try holding the mirrors closer together or on portions of the pieces to see even more designs.

USE WITH MIRROR ANGLE HOLDER. You’ll love the accuracy and ease of using Magic Mirrors with the From Marti Michell Mirror Angle Holder, Product #8937. Clear acrylic will not obscure vision. Deep channels to firmly hold mirrors in place in the 3 most popular angles—45°, 60° and 90°. Approximately 3½” square. See Related Products below.
