Tonight I spent an hour or so in the planning stage of a new quilt. I love this part – pure creativity. I open Adobe Illustrator and just mess around in it for awhile. I knew I wanted to try another version of this quilt – with white background fabric and a little more openness. This is what I ended up with tonight:
Each star block is finished at 8.5” just like in the first version.
Version 2 has the same number of stars as the version 1 quilt:
…but with the stars spread out a little, it makes a toddler size quilt into a throw size. Perfect!
Usually at this point I do all of the math to figure out how much fabric I need. Then I print out the “sketch” of the quilt, along with the fabric requirements list and put it in a folder. Then the folder and I head to the fabric store to find some inspiration. This time I found what I needed online – awesome.
I found these fabrics on sale – a great sale too! [here] Now I just have to wait for it all to arrive in the mail!
The quilt will eventually end up in the shop. As I work on it, I’ll post photos of it’s progress and (of course) the completed quilt before it finds a new home.
