An idea has been squirming around in my head, and while I've certainly had crazier ideas, it's probably my craziest quilting idea to boot:
I want to make a queen-sized quilt.
(Insert nervous giggle.) From a girl who has yet to make anything larger than a throw quilt, it's definitely an ambitious project. Do I think Agatha and I can handle it? Probably.
Now that I've decided to do it, I'm having a nightmare time deciding on everything else. I've had my current quilt since I got married--six years. When I saw it in the store, I knew I had to have it. But I won't know what the final product will look like until I've made the final product, and that paralyzes me with fear.
I've started auditioning blocks in hopes that I would stumble across something that I really like. The first I've tried is a "wonky star" block. I happen to love making this block, which is a bit odd since it involves wasting a bit of fabric, and to be honest, I hate wasting fabric.
I pulled this stack of fabric to work with. I later added solids in dark purple and white. Then I got to work!
They finish at 10.5 inches. I like this last block in particular. This might be a mini quilt. Or maybe a big 20" pillow? Or perhaps a long table runner? (PS-I used this tutorial.)
If I did make a big quilt using wonky star blocks, I'd want to make a quilt like this one or this one.
I've started on my quilt using Reunion fabric. I decided to chop up the charm pack and make a smaller batch of patchwork, and having made two 6x6 blocks, I'm happy I did. I love them!
I've got two more blocks to make, and then it's time to pick out accompanying fabrics and piece this puppy together.
I do have one small finish from this week--my jungle quilt from last week. Binding is added, and work is complete.
