As I told you all in my last post, I have decided to make myself a quilt. The inspiration for the quilt I wanted to make, was a cute mini quilt from the Purl Bee.
After some thought, I’ve come up with a plan to incorporate the idea of circles in a design that’s a little more funky and a lot more me.
Of course, since this is a computer rendition, I’m sure that I will be using different fabrics than I have in the sample design. Basically, I’m going to quilt some more standard designs and then cut them into circles, and applique the whole thing onto a 108×120-inch quilt backing.
And, yes, this is going to be a major undertaking. I’m expecting to be working on this for at least a year. Expecially considering that I’ll be hand quilting and I have never quilted anything before.
The individual circluar designs break down as follows:
In the diagram, the blue circles are 21-inches across, red circles are 14-inches in diameter and yellow circles are 7-inches.
