Through the Shattered Looking-Glass Design

This is just a short post, to share a design I have had in my head for a couple of months and finally managed to get it down using threadbias.com.

Design Name: Through the shattered looking-glass
Inspiration/idea: I had this idea about looking through a looking-glass/magnifying glass Then what if the glass had been shattered how great would improv blocks represent the broken glass.
Color choices: Blues = sky, Orange/red/yellow = flowers, greens = grass

I would love some feedback and thoughts…what do you think?

For our Guild meeting next month (Triangle Modern Quilt Guild), I signed up to participate in a 18″ x 18″ pillow swap.  I saw this as the perfect opportunity to try my new book purchase “Pillow Pop” out.

I decided I wanted to use blue and green as more the solid prints and mix them in with low-volume prints. I have chosen from the book to do the “Crystallized” Pattern by Angela Mitchell, it uses 100 HST (Half – Square Triangles).

I spend the evening last night in front of the TV cutting all the 3″ x 3″ squares I will need. Here’s a peek.

The stack of Fabrics I used (now I have a great scraps pile too 🙂 ) + the 100 squares:

Fantastic….new fabric from Spoonflower

Last month Spoonflower had a fat quarter sale – buy one get one free (~50% off). I got a little carried away and ordered 42 fat quarters. What can I say – i love the designs available at Spoonflower.

On the weekend the fabric arrived. I am so excited and happy with my choices.

Here is an overview look at the delivery:

I did have a couple of projects in mind for some of the fabrics. For the Orange and Grey Quilt (that now has a splash of green), I was planning on using these:

For a purple quilt like this one, that I have in mind for a future project:

For my coffee cup sleeves that I am making for my work’s Craft fair, I was going to use these as a feature fabric:

And then there were just miscellaneous fantastic fabric that I loved, one being a Volkswagen print which my husband will love:
