My package is already to go for my first ever Traveling quilt. The blocks are done. The solid yardage has arrived (including the Kona Torch). You might say I am over excited about this….I am probably driving the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts” crazy.
The last thing I have added to my package is a small traveling journal/design book for folks to fill in along the way. The first pages goes through my ideas (similar to this post)…
- Inspiration: The Road signs I all of a sudden found interesting on our way up to the North Carolina Mountains for vacation.
- Style: Very much a minimalistic, architectural feel, influenced by Erin Wilson’s quilts (which are featured in the pictures erinwilsonquilts.com).
- Color Palette: Navy (Kona Nautical), Orange (Kona Torch), Aqua (Kona Pool), Dark Grey (Kona Graphite) and then Neutrals for the background (White, Bone, Oyster, Putty, Ash, Silver etc). A minimal use of prints is ok.
I love the idea of the little design book/journal…I did feel the kid come out in me again and the creativity renewed with this little project. I hope the others have fun with it. Here are the others in our fab little group.
