I sew facing the design wall where the livingroom quilt pieces are pinned and I started seeing pattern variations the other day. Diagonal stripes appeared! I have a bunch of completed squares, so I laid them out and here are some ideas for another quilt….
This design would be amazing but it would require the most piecing. Perhaps for more interest, each stripe could vary? Hand dyed gradations could be used???
This one with the squares between looks good. Would I use a contrasting fabric as I laid it out or have the same background as the pieced square?
Rectangles between the squares is interesting, and not a shape common to quilts. I should audition this one again with the same background so I can see what it looks like.
I do have some of the discarded squares from the color trials that I could start with… I really like this idea!
I have a good friend who subscribes to my blog and is kind enough to say she enjoys reading it! Periodically she asks me why I enjoy blogging so much. This post is a good example of one reason – blogging is a way of saving an idea. This design is great but I cannot start something so involved at this point in time. Now it’s headed off in the blogosphere (and The Cloud) where it will be saved for when I need a new idea. Some of you might comment and give me more ideas. And just one more thing – I really hope that it might inspire someone.
