About a year ago, I sat down for a few days and doodled up a bunch of different quilt ideas. Meringue was the first quilt that I made based on those sketches, and I’m about to start working on the next quilt from that design session. I call this design Night Garden, and I think when you see my original multi-fabric version of the design, the name will make sense:
My sister- and brother-in-law have been using Starlight Crystals on their bed for several years now, and it is time for me to make them a proper queen sized quilt to actually fit on their bed (I gifted them a twin size version Starlight Crystals). When I shared the Night Garden concept sketch with them, they wondered what it would look like increased to queen size and rendered in only 2 colors.
It didn’t take me long to upsize the pattern to 90″ x 100″ and render it in two colors. The rendering above uses Kona Cottons in Ocean and Oyster, and they were really excited about the design. Yay! We just settled on using Kona Royal and Oyster, and they selected a wide backing fabric, Kona Cotton in Navy. With the design and fabric selection sorted out, the tasks I have ahead of me this weekend are to work on finalizing writing the initial pattern instructions and think about the bonus quilt designs. I love being able to use the scraps from my curve piecing patterns and immediately make a second (bonus) quilt. Once I have the ideas and pattern in place, I’ll be ready to start sewing this quilt for them!
