This is how we keep up with each other and the projects we work on. Her is the one who doesn't pin and quilts her way! The Crafter, who won't crochet, is a painter, a stitcher and has a few more talents up her sleeve. Me is the quilter that pins, irons and measures twice!!!
I know you might think I'm crazy but I'm okay with that. I want to make this quilt. Just the small version. I looked at the pattern last night. It's not so bad. I think material selection will be the most difficult part of this entire quilt.
It calls for large print fabrics. I'm not usually a fan of large print fabrics but I am going to give it a try!!! Now to decide what colours to do it in!
I'm obsessed with this quilt. I can't wait to get started. I've even finished a few tasks that I hate doing - I took out the garbage, did errands around town, swept/washed the floor (okay I turned the robot on)!!! This is the version of the quilt that caught my eye:
I found it on Pinterest, which lead me to Pile O'Fabric Modern Sewing Blog!!! As I read the post, I discovered she used a jelly roll and made this into a wall hanging instead of a full size quilt. I just happen to have a few jelly rolls and I think I might follow her lead and make a wall hanging instead of a full sized quilt. So I played with some colours:
Since the quilt is called Super Nova, I thought I would search for some guidance. Here's what I used:
An actual super nova!!! I have a few more things, quilt things, to finish before I get to start this one. Maybe I can do this in NB this summer just using scraps!! No planning??? Not sure I can do that!!!!
One more sleep and it's the last day of school!!!!
I've quickly flipped through it ... Just looked at the pictures!! I can't wait to do some reading tonight. There's lots of tips inside this book for things like quilting and what type of designs to use.
I thought of you when I saw this one. I know how you like a scrappy quilt. I think this would look great with scraps and one solid.
This quilt is the reason why I wanted to buy this book!! I have pinned a bunch of them on Pinterest. I can't wait to try this one!!
There are a couple others in the book that I'm interested in too!!!
