Every once and awhile I get an idea that I can't get out of my head and I have to take action. I've had an idea for an Autumn quilt for quite some time now and I pulled a couple of test blocks together.
These are 10" blocks and each block has 6 different fabrics.
Potential idea for a border, or sashing or whatever.
I started pulling fabrics together so I could really see what I have on hand to incorporate into the design.
I can see from this picture that I need more reds in my stash of fall colors. I've been collecting this group of fabrics for years. I think it's time to use them now.
You will be seeing this quilt come alive over the next few months. I have some of the quilt designed on paper, but most of it is floating around in my brain and needs to get into the computer and turned into a new design. I wish I could just plug a cord into my ear and have it all download into a file on my computer. That would be so much easier!
