Tessellated Leaves - Design

Lots of WiPs


I definitely think of myself as a one project at a time kind of person, and I have found myself with many more projects than I am used to at one time at the moment. Today I want to introduce you to 2 more queen sized quilt projects that I have taken on. The goal is to have both of these completed by January, which I think is doable.

First up is the more secretive of the two projects. I will not be able to post a lot of detail or progress shots of this one until it is gifted, but I will be able to share some sneak peaks along the way. I have been working on this concept for a while, and the last of the fabrics finally arrived at the end of the day yesterday:

The brown fabric in the upper right hand corner will be used as the backing and binding. Thanks again to Jo @ Riddle and Whimsy for letting me de-stash some of her Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander for use in this quilt. I am not usually a fabric pre-washer, but I have the reds in the wash right now to make sure they do not run when I get the quilt finished and washed the first time. I also plan on cutting into the fabrics and starting block construction on this project later this morning. Yay!

And I have another fun queen sized quilt that I am going to be working on. Inspired by the customer’s interest in M.C. Escher and fall colors, I have designed a Tessellated Leaves quilt with a fun ombre / fall color gradient.

You might notice the brown fabric is also going to be used in this quilt as a border. It will be the backing and binding as well. Lots of love for the brown swirl / tree ring pattern right now! This quilt is going to be extra long, and I think I am going to have a lot of HSTs to create for this pattern! I have placed the fabric order for this quilt and will receive the fabric by next Wednesday.

Looking over my list of current WiPs:

  1. Foothills Mystery Quilt (last month of instructions: April 2015)
  2. Cocoa Leaf Drum Lamp Inspired Queen Sized Quilt
  3. Pretty Secretive Queen Sized Quilt
  4. Tessellated Leaves Queen Sized Quilt
  5. Set of 6 Placemats
  6. Lap Quilt?

I will be able to share more about the placemats once a firm design has been selected, and I am pretty sure that the lap quilt ideas I have are going to have to sit on the back burner for a while. I have made some more design progress on the Cocoa Leaf queen sized quilt, and the customer’s have selected the background color they want to use, so I expect I will be making the fabric order for that quilt in the next week or two as well.

Well, no sense in prolonging the work any longer, time to get sewing, right?!? 🙂
