“Stacks of Colour” Quilt
Ok, so first let me say that I’m not thrilled with that name yet. I’ve been playing with it for awhile, and I haven’t hit that “that’s it!” moment yet. So it will likely change… But if anyone has any ideas I’d love to here them!
Anyhoo…when I first posted my plan for this quilt a few weeks ago, there was some interest from people who wanted to join in. I’m super busy and rather scattered these days, so I think a quilt-a-long would be a disaster. People would be waiting months for the next step! But as I move along I’ll post my progress and my decisions.
I worked out some sizing options so that if you don’t want to make a queen-sized quilt, which is what I’m making, you can still make use of the design.
The design uses eight (8) solid fabrics, and in my case I’m using eight soft neutrals. But you can use any eight colours you’d like, and I whipped up a few examples so that you can get a sense of how changing the colours will change the overall mood of the finished quilt.
There are only three (3) unique pieces in the quilt:
60 x 7.5″ x 5.5″ (7″ x 5″ finished)
60 x 14.5″ x 5.5″ (14″ x 5″ finished)
20 x 21.5″ x 5.5″ (21″ x 5″ finished)
The breakdown according to colour is as follows:
At some point I’ll write up a complete, downloadable pattern, but I have to finish my quilt first! I’ll keep you posted! But in the mean time, I’d love to see how you are reinterpreting the design to suit your own needs, so I created a Flickr group (thought&found designs) so that people can share their progress with me. I can’t wait to see what other people make!
