I hope you are having a great day! Today, I thought I would share how I plan a quilt. I often work from a pattern but sometime inspiration strikes me. When this happens I have to pull out my graph paper and attempt to draw what is in my head. Everything starts with idea then I grab my sketch book, a pen and my colored pencils.
I then use my red pen to draw a set of darker grid lines. Today I am thinking about how much I love the scrappy trip around the world but I wish the blocks could be bigger. What If I combined the scrappy trip around the world and the St Louis 16 patch.
I decide I want to use my Kate Spain fabric for this quilt ….I am calling it the Scrappy Trip 16 Patch. What you guys think?
Now I am almost ready to get started. I decide I am going to place a white strip in the middle of each Scrappy Trip 16 Patch so I outline that first.
Now I am ready to start filling in the remaining blocks. This is what each Scrappy Trip 16 patch will look like. Are you following me?
Here is my sketch all colored in. I think I am in love! I really like how it looks like a pixelated plus.
Here is the finished quilt.
So what you guys think? Tomorrow I will be posting a tutorial for this quilt. This will be my first time doing such a thing and I must admit I am a little excited! Stay tuned!
Until next time, Sew Pretty!
