The idea for this quilt started with a stack of pretty fabrics. My happy colors. Wanna see?
These are all rejected Love bindings. They looked so pretty together that I stacked them up and let them sit and hang out awhile. Mingle. I had a hard time choosing a pattern I liked. I was thinking of something along the lines of these three quilts. I kept rearranging the pile, trying to simplify the stack and I kept sketching squares and log cabins. The squares were a little too simple, and the log cabins were too traditional. I didn't want the large scale of some of the fabrics to get lost in small skinny strips. This morning I woke up thinking...
Big oversize blocks,
This is the plan. I'm calling it "Brick House" because... it's not a log cabin. ; )
Adobe Illustrator was my colored pencils today. My kids lost all of mine except red and brown. I'll save them for my Rouenneries quilt. Ha!
