This quilt is truly epic- the kind of quilt that takes real time and effort and ends in supreme satisfaction. I am so excited to get started.
I’m toying with the idea of making 2 of these… Or maybe just making the main blocks each twice and using them in some gifts. It seems like it’s hardly any more effort once you get each block figured out. The lovely Laura from Little and Lots had the brilliant idea to do Christmas colors. It’d be fun to do a second set of blocks and use them for Christmas presents.
First things first though: I have to gather my first fabric pull for the project. I’ve said it before and I really believe it: fabric selection is the most important part of making a quilt.
The first picture shows the main scheme I’m thinking: teal, turquoise and pool blue. The second shot shows backgrounds (black, white, and every shade of gray from barely gray to deep steel blue gray) as well as accents (pink and orange). My backgrounds are all prints- I’m loving texts especially right now. Obviously this fabric pull is a big shout out to Anna Maria Horner, probably because I’m a little enamored of her.
A few more detail shots just for fun:
If you’re really observant you may have noticed that this color scheme is a bit familiar- as seen in this mini and this teacup block. I was somewhat intentionally testing this color scheme when I took on these smaller projects. I like the results in both cases so full speed ahead I guess!
Lastly, tomorrow is the last day for the You Show Me Yours I’ll Show You Mine linky party!! If you have been waiting till the last minute don’t forget to link up tomorrow by midnight!
