I have been asked to make a quilt all in Blue.
It is for someone I've never met, but is highly regarded by someone I love.
I can't share more about this person until the quilt has been delivered.
But I can tell you that the quilt will consist of 117 different fabrics in shades of Blues & Creams. The variety made possible thru the use of 5 different blue themed charm packs and several batik and background fabrics.
Rather than use a traditional pattern, I've opted to make this quilt using a few of my favorite design elements. This will allow me to personalize the quilt for it's recipient. I find Beauty in Simplicity so I will have this reflected in the quilt as well. I've chosen 2 fairly simply block designs, in addition to a central applique' block.
First up - 144 Hourglass blocks.
I will be working on these at my retreat this weekend.
One done, 143 more to go....
