My hubby and I were watching TV the other night when I saw something so beautiful. He was fast forwarding through the commercials (remember when we couldn't do that) when I said "Wait go back!!! In the blur I saw a quilt." He went back and paused it so I could take some pictures. I don't even remember what the commercial was for, but I instantly fell in love with it :)
I have never been that great at math and I thought I would never be able to make my own patterns. Since I have started quilting I am getting better at math and I can be pretty determined. So I got out the ol' graph paper and colored pencils and started sketching. I thought this would be a great one to cut my teeth on since it's just squares and rectangles.
I took a piece of tracing paper and traced the outlines and figured out the size of each piece.
Once I figured out how much fabric I would need I started searching online for some Kona Solids. I really loved this bundle of fabric but it didn't last long at all!
I started cutting my pieces and throwing them up on the design wall, which by the way is to small. I had to improvise a little and also use the floor :)
Once I sewed the pieces into panels I did some rearranging with the help of my honey.
I love the way it turned out and can't wait to get the back done so I can quilt this monster. I'm still not sure how I'm going to quilt it, any suggestions?
I hope your having a great start to your week!!
