I have been planning for a long time now, to make a quilt for my son. I have finally put it on my goal list for 2014, August for his birthday.
I had purchased a Fat Quarter Bundle of Constellations a while back (March 2013 from Westwood arces), and made this cushion (the wonky universe) from it.
That gave me the idea to make a quilt from the same fabric….but the question arose…..will I have enough with only having fat quarters?? It was a little late to start thinking about this, as now, the fabric was hard to find. Then, low and behold last month, Hawthorne Threads got more of it in stock – it’s not everything but it has the best of the prints. I bought 1/2 yards of everything they had.
Here are the designs, I am choosing between for my son’s quilt. I am leaning towards the first one.

This was one of my recent fabric purchases I had a defined use up front for, which is what I am trying to accomplish this year :-). Linking up with Molli Sparkles, for the first week of Sunday Stash in 2014.
I know I am leaving this to the last-minute to join the Bloggers Quilt Festival….I couldn’t decide what to choose, or if I was going to link-up anything. Needless to say, I have decided to enter. I loved this particular project, as it was for my son. He uses it every night and loves it. Is that not the best reward??
I am entering his pillow “Wonky Universe” for the mini quilt section link-up. It is made mostly from Lizzie House Constellations mini charms. I added a wonky star in one corner to add a visual focus.
I loved the wonkiness of the pillow in the mismatched squares and in the star. I also enjoyed the multi-colored quilting in this cushion. I used both yellow and navy thread. Here is a close-up.
Just one more photo… and that is my entry.
