Here is my progress so far;
I have designed this quilt myself, with the idea being a feature panel in the middle surrounded by a series of concentric stars.
As you can see from the first photo, I bought a series of fat quarters for this project. It's what I tend to do, and then I'll purchase a metre or more of my favourite print for the backing fabric and some more for the binding. But this time I have a problem.
I really like the red alphabet print and I want to use it in the next 'star'. However, I am fast running out of this print and I know I will never have enough for all those HSTs that I will need to go around the edge of this quilt :-( So I have just had to order in some more. Which is frustrating because I have to wait a couple of days for it to arrive...just when I am in the creative flow...don't you hate it when that happens!
But I guess that is one of the drawbacks of coming up with your own design. Particularly if with like this quilt, it's a kind of design-as-you-go type thing. I hadn't realised just how much I was going to love the alphabet print, and it really works well against the more muted tones of the other fabrics.
I am looking forward to reporting on progress on this one soon.
And I shall be hand quilting it too with pearle cotton. I can't wait to settle down with a good film and get started!
