Winging it


Well, kind of. I'm a quilt pattern kind of girl although I yearn to be a quilt designer. This project is inspired by a pattern, but I'm not using it. It's not a very far stretch but it's a start.

I think my biggest fear is "wasting fabric" by cutting it up and then ending up with something I hate.
I like what I'm doing here, so it's all good so far.

Pin It!

  1. I absolutely love what you are doing so far. The colors are divine. I have always been drawn to greens and earthy color so that is part of it but really they are beautiful. Can't wait to see how it all comes together. Be bold!

  2. I almost always wing it with my quilts... and when you love the fabrics, you really can't go wrong. The white is a wonderful choice to showcase those pretty greens. Can't wait to see your finished product!

  7. i love the greens and blues! i just looked at that denyse schmidt quilt the other night and thought about winging it. i am assuming that it is the one you are talking about. i think this might jump to the top of my list!

  8. I'm a pattern girl too, with designer in my dreams. Keep at it, design girl! Love these colors together.

  9. I think I am in the same boat as you. I love to use patterns, but long to design my own. Maybe, for me, it is a lack of confidence in that area. I guess that you just have to jump right in. What you are doing looks terrific!

  10. I love your fabrics. I find green challenging to match / coordinate with. I can't wait to see your progress.

  12. looks a bit like the denyse schmidt quilt i'm drooling over since i have the book... but oh, the template cutting! *yuck*
    i might steal your idea to cut it "as it comes"... it looks beautiful, and the colors surely are to die for! ^-^

  13. Your fabric choices are lovely. Crisp white works with anything. I like to wing it with a pattern starting for inspiration too. Will be looking foward to watching what this develops into!

  15. The fabrics are lovely. I have a similar fear about cutting into and then subsequently wasting fabric. I try to remember that it's not an artery in my body into which I'm cutting causing me to fall over dead. That little self-reminder works...sometimes.

  19. It looks wonderful! I can't wait to see it finished (and maybe when it is finished & looks lovely it will give you the courage to totally wing it next time:).
