Where do you start in designing an original quilt? Here is an example of the very beginning of a quilt idea. The word blocks came from a new arrival in the shop, Heartfelt Home Faith Panel from Timeless Treasures. We cut apart the various shaped blocks, along with some tile blocks from the Aphrodite panel made by Northcott. After laying them out on the floor and playing with the arrangement a bit, the above grouping is what I came up with. I took a picture so I could remember the layout, then packaged up the fabrics, along with some coordinating fabric for putting the blocks together, and sent them to Polly, one of our quilt designers and sample makers. We can't wait to see what she comes up with! Panels are available now at Lickety Stitch Quilts.
