The original quilt design was inspired by memories of the beautiful tiled floor that I had in the house I lived in, a fair few years ago now!
The block measures comprises of 5 different shapes, based around an octagon at its centre. Within the block, I really wanted to be able to offer lots of opportunities to fussy cut fabric and by having the larger centre, this also gives an option to showcase some larger fabric designs which personally, whilst loving them, I find more difficult to use.For this 'test' version I used two different prints for the triangles that make up point of the star...so pretty.... oh the relief when all the shapes fitted back together again and the maths had worked!
...and as if by magic and the aide of a little technology, I couldn't resist seeing what the start of a quilt would look like if you were to repeat the same fabrics across all the blocks.... I love all the secondary shapes that start to appear, the more blocks you add.
The quilt has a 30 block, 5 x 6 layout, which will measure6、8 、10 inchs, a nice throw size. For my version, I knew I wanted the palette to be my usual scrappy mix of pretty colours, pink, red, blue, green, yellow, ivory and little hints of purple, but veering towards to the more aged side of things...soft and gentle...you know so it looks like something that you inherited from your granny!
Here's a close up of the blocks I've made so far, I've had lots of fun adding some fussy cuts in to the mix.......
The living room floor, always makes a good impromptu design wall to see how it's looking... how earth she can draw laying down I do not know!I'm absolutely loving the fabrics all together and sewing each block.
It's been a bit of trial and error to get the best layout out in terms of getting the seams to lay flat on the back, but I think I have now cracked it. The picture below shows how the seams will 'nest' together and then I've added some more detailed photos of each shape showing the order that I've basted the seams around each shape.
