Since I have received the Liberty London fabrics I was thinking about a quilt design. I knew I wanted to make two quilts, one for my husband and the other one for me. The choice for the background fabric was easy : Kona cotton solid in silver for my husband and Kona cotton solid in eggshell for my quilt.
On the following sheet you can see the quilt design evolution. These are not all designs I was playing with, but you can see the direction going towards the final quilt design.
Butterfly charm block paper piecing – this is the link to free paper pieced butterflies designed by Nicole from lillyella. I was also thinking integrating a few butterflies into the quilt design. At the end I decided against – so many tiny pieces, maybe next time, need more FPP practice and patience.
My final design decision : the jewel box blocks look as they are levitating over a silver background. This design (in my eyes) is lighter as the one with only blocks quilt design without any borders.
So far I have pieced the silver version. I shall post more details about the jewel box block and quilt size shortly.
At the moment I am working on some other projects, more about that next time. Untill then happy quilting!
