As Jennifer says, this is the perfect opportunity to try out some quilting ideas on a smaller scale……so I decided to make a mini quilt based on a design that I have really wanted to do since I first saw it late last year .
I used about 9-10 shades of slightly different colours to the original as I just wanted to use up what I had in my stash and I seem to have a lot of blues and teal/greens as they are my favourite colours. They are all solids and there is a mix of cotton, linen, and organic cotton fabrics.
I drew up the design on graph paper and worked out the approximate shapes/sizes needed to make the blocks. I made a small hourglass type block to start with then added triangular shapes similar to flying geese to those before piecing the remainder of the each of the 4 blocks in each colourway. Needless to say I became very good friends with my seam ripper during this whole process !
