ow Hello hello! Great to see you! Now I shall tell you about my latest idea which I don’t yet if it is possible to make (for me) or not. I hope to make the test block today. One day when puppies were sleeping, I draw this for the ’30 Days of Quilt Design’ challenge …
For me it looked *** and when I asked from hb what he see’s here, he said the same: dream catcher!
When I coloured this, I thought the centre could be like blue night and then more colourful dreams around.
Then I didn’t think if this could become a quilt. I really liked how this and started to think how … and in the morning I woke up with a clear plan. Cutting with tamplates and sewing by hand the centre piece. Surrounding pieces should be possible to sew by machine. There are some curves but I’m not affraid. This year I have challenged myself to make curves.
An other time when puppies where sleeping, I draw the plan on a big firm paper.
I draw it also on a ‘baking’ paper so I have the design for later use after I have cut the templates from the firm paper.
I gave ‘name’ with number and letter for each piece, in the order I shall sew them (as it was foundation paper piecing).
Then it was time to think about fabrics. I was suggested to use earthy colours. Hmmm did I have any in my stash? I had thought to use blue solids for the centre and other solid for the around areas. But perhaps I’m stucked to solids because of the diamonds and could use now some prints.
I really don’t know … my stash is limited …
… and even I really like this bundle, it’s not exactly what I want now.
I like the different tones of blue for the centre so I trust my istinct and stick to them. Perhaps they don’t need to be all solids to get softer look.
I have cut the templates and created special file for them. I hope to sew a test block this evening to see if this can be made in real or just in my dreams.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your lovely comments! Have you dreamed about quilt you were not sure if it can come true and then made it?
