Cutting Out the Urban Baby Pattern

I’m currently working on cutting out pieces for the  48-inch circle.  I’m using the “Urban Baby” pattern designed by Valori Wells for FreeSpirit.  I decided on this pattern, not only because it was the right size, but because in black and white should be a nice addition to my quilt.  Download the pattern yourself at the Stitchin’ Post.

48-inch Circle

I will be using the design, with a few modifications. First off, I’m rather obviously going to be cutting down the square into a circle.  The actual design uses 18 different fabrics, as well. I don’t have that many fabrics, and don’t think I could find that many around here if I wanted to… so I’ve done a little rework to the design.  Basically, by using the same pattern, and using the same fabric for multiple fabric groups, I have been able to cut the number of fabrics I need from 18 to 8.  This is a lot more do-able, and a lot less expensive, if you ask me.

Have you ever redone a layout for something like this?

Did it turn out the way you expected?
