I arranged and rearranged the fabrics, made sketches on some graph paper and never really liked the result. Then one night I was watching an episode of Nova (about fractals) and saw the solution! It looked something like this:
I loved the look of the larger squares surrounded by the smaller squares. I quickly grabbed a paper and drew up the idea. Then I finished watching the show (not sure I understood a whole lot of it). The next day I worked with the idea a little in illustrator and then started on the actual quilt.
The finished quilt is a large crib size / lap size: 51" x 51"
I love the large dot fabric I found for the backing. It's from the All Star 2 line by Riley Blake. The dinosaur fabric is Dino Dudes from Michael Miller, the cute orange ABC fabric is AlphaBuddies from Andover Fabrics, and the brown dotty binding is Riley Blake (I think from the original All Star line.)
The pattern for this quilt is now available!
