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.
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?
