Design Wall October 15, 2012


Here is what is on the design wall at the moment. I finished the first alphabet quilt and decided to do at least one more, but with a few modifications to the shapes of the letters. I used graph paper to draw them out, and am being a bit more intentional about the shapes and colors I am using.











Here is the plan with the altered letters. I found some free graph paper online and printed out 8 squares to the inch, because I'm making 8 inch squares, then I just count the squares to know how big to make the pieces. It makes it much easier.

Here is the finished top. I like the way this one came out too, and now I just need to quilt it. I think I'll probably use gray thread for the quilting, though I may end up using matching or complementary colors for quilting the letters. I planned to use a fleece back, but perhaps I'll change that to flannel, much more baby friendly.

looks great! I think a light grey thread would be a nice addition to your baby quilt.

I like it a lot but think I like the redrawn ones even better. Is it OK to copy your graph paper? I will like to add this to my very long list of quilts to make.

I love your letters, modern yet tratitional. Where did you find the free graph paper?

What a cute quilt. Love the modern look. I'd be interested in where you found the graph paper online free.
