A Quilting Project

First and foremost, JoAnn Fabrics opens today!! I am officially dubbing July 26th a new town holiday! That’s right y’all, JoAnn Fabrics is coming back to town! I am uber excited :P. We used to have one, then it went away, and now *it’s back*! Totally planning on throwing some money away after work.

On to other news, I told you I’d share my quilt show purchase, and here it is!

My parents saw this at the quilt show and loved it, then turned to me and asked what I can do with it. I've never made up my own pattern yet for a quilt, so this is my first! If you're interested this panel can be purchased from Honey Fork Fabrics, it is called Moda-Beautiful Blessings Panel (Jewel)

This is the quilt pattern idea that I came up with for this panel:

It's not drawn quite to scale, but I did get all my measurements figured out and written in. My parents wanted a throw size quilt, so the completed quilt will be 50"x60". They also plan to put this quilt over the back of the couch, which is why I faced the larger panels/words this direction. The large panels and 2" squares will be the only color in this quilt, the rest is going to be a neutral light color. This way the colors will pop out and they'll appear as if they're floating.

I'm pretty excited about this project, let me know your thoughts on it!

  1. That outline looks pretty impressive! Lots of measurements to understand and not mess up. Must take a pretty steady hand along with a mathematical mind, neither of which I personally have. Here's to the best of results on your latest project! Let us all know how it goes! : )
