Last week I decided to join a quilt along being held by Freshly Pieced to create this awesome Supernova quilt:
Yesterday I started pulling fabrics and deciding what I would use. Because I don't have the blocks mapped out in my head, I couldn't visualize what each fabric was being used for. This posed a challenge, but then I decided to just wing it. It will be far more interesting to just see what happens after I start piecing the blocks.
I have decided to pretend the blocks are flowers, so I choose one center fabric that was used throughout each block and the second fabric is a dark or light green. This should add some continuity between the blocks and make things interesting.
So here's my fabric choices for each block:
I'm so glad I took Lee's advice and cut fabric block by block and put everything in labeled baggies. I don't want to think how messed up everything would be if I hadn't!
This was I can't wait to start piecing these into blocks! Cutting the Super Nova quilt out was a nice break from Hot Cast, but now I'm ready to get back to quilting.
Let's go quilt,
