I Love It When A Plan Comes Together

I admit that I really enjoy the process of having a vision for a group a fabrics that I just love and have to have, and then when the quilt is finished feeling very rewarded by how the finished project honors my vision.
The quilt that I just finished was the project that I worked on at retreat, but  left the background piece for the center medallion behind.:( so had to stop and finish this week at home. The reward was worth staying with it because this quilt looks just as I envisioned it would.   Eurika!!
The inspiration was just a photo. I was required to sharpen up my math skills and fiqure out how to make it all fit together. It seemed that it would be easy because it was just strips and the center is a large dresden plate.  I designed the center on EQ, which I have a love/hate relatonship with. I am pleased that it all fit together and I was encouraged that I still had the skills needed to design from just a picture. And I like the way the fabrics make it all come together. Now I need to think about how to quilt it.
I'm sure I will come up with something worthy of my time and effort.
I guess it needs a name...not sure what that would be. I can never think of clever titles for my quilts.
Any suggestions?
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned I'm starting a stunning quilt using Kaffe Fassett fabrics to be auctioned to benefit my granddaughters' school. I will keep you posted on its progress.

  1. I can't ever think of clever names for my quilts, either, so I am no help. But your quilt is certainly a stunner! I can't wait to see your Kaffe Fassett quilt.
