designing




I always start my quilt designs by sketching in a notebook and here's a peek at a new project I'm working on. I'll be using some gorgeous fabrics by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom in this one, and I'm so excited to see how it turns out. Jennifer's fabrics are absolutely gorgeous, and her use of color is nothing less than amazing.


Olivia loves to help me draw, and she had the important task of helping me choose colors in my sketch. How about some green?




Here's the final sketch, completely colored in. I love the colors and think it will look even better in Jennifer's fabrics!




Do you sketch out your quilts before you start cutting and sewing? I think it's a great way to plan quilting projects, plus it's a fun record of the quilt-making process as you compare your initial drawings with the finished product.




I can't wait to get started on this one, and I'll be sure to show you pics of it when it's done!
