I had a lot of fun coming up with bonus quilt design ideas for Night Garden over the weekend, and I’d love to know what you think about what I’ve decided.
I started out with the Night Garden throw size quilts (shown above as a reference). The Night Garden throw size quilt finishes at 66″ square.
I really love how the Night Garden throw bonus quilt design came together! It took several iterations, and I finally settled on this fun 54″ x 63″ bonus throw quilt design. It reminds me of early arcade games like Space Invaders, so I’m going to name it the Space Arcade quilt.
When making the queen size version of Night Garden (shown above, 90″ x 100″), the extra piecing makes larger scrap sizes than those created to piece the center of the quilt. I puzzled on what do do for a while, and ended up chatting with my friend Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs. Ultimately, her suggestion to offer TWO bonus quilts for the queen size made the most sense to me.
So, the queen size Night Garden quilt can make a bonus Space Arcade Quilt AND a second 60″ square bonus quilt (shown above). I find that there is a lot to look at in the second bonus quilt (I really love the shape of the negative space in the center of the quilt), and because of the way the different shapes come together, I’m going to name this one the Congruence Quilt.
Ultimately, I was swayed to make a second bonus quilt with the queen size scraps because all of the designs I was coming up with that used ALL of the queen scraps created another queen size quilt. I figured quilters would be ready for something a bit smaller after piecing a large queen size quilt. So, what do you think, did I make the right choice?
