Quilt design complete

My Button

For this month’s “A lovely year of finishes” I am targeting to finish one of 3 quilt tops. I do not think I will get that quilt top finish, but the good news is I finished my first quilt design for the first quilt.

I had mentioned that I was looking to do something like this:

Well then I was in a meeting the other day, and someone had put up a powerpoint slide, which lead me to designing my own block using threadbias.com. It has a set of arrows that point in (this way) and a set of arrows that point out (that way). Here is a look at the block:

The quilt is for a boy who loves blue, so playing with blues and this design here is what I think  the final quilt will look like. What do you think?

      I just pulled out all 40 fabrics I think can work today from my stash – so I am hoping to get a row done this week, if I ignore my other projects 🙂

      It is not too bad, there are a couple of things I would change. The thing I like the most is you can cancel at any time and just use it for the month you have paid for.

    This looks really great! The back and forth with dark and light fabrics is great. I like that it’s all made of arrows (in the centres, obviously) but that depending how you look at it, sometimes it’ll just look like a generic background and then other times your eye will make it pop up and look like an arrow – like an optical illusion.

      Thanks :-), I just pulled out my fabric and actually have 40 blue toned fabrics I can use with some left over. Mentioned it to the hubby who thinks I now have enough fabric… but maybe if I didn’t have it how can you pick them out and just do such a project right 😉
