a lucienne day quilt


sorry for the delay in my post! I was up against migraines, last minute projects, and blogger outages. it also took me a while to figure out how much fabric to send (hopefully I sent out enough!).

shopping the stash

I went back and forth on what I wanted this quilt to look like. after looking at way too many websites, lucienne day's prints kept calling to me. I love her use of shapes and pattern repeats. they are a little quirky, unexpected, and still very modern. all features I want in a quilt.

I'm sending everyone a selection of solids. there will either be a brown or grey fat quarter in your stack, please use this for your background. I'm keeping things a little vague because I want to see your interpretation of these shapes and, almost, random patterns. I would like 20" blocks with shapes floating about. you can use whatever techniques you'd like. have fun with this!

if I didn't send enough fabric let me know and I can try to find more in the stash. or you are welcome to add any solid scraps you have that you think work with these colors.


  1. Your collage is amazing - I love these prints!

  2. it was hard narrowing them down!

  3. Fun! Any favourites among those prints?

  4. oh that's a tough one! magnetic is definitely near the top. isosceles is pretty sweet too :)

  5. I just love those little swatches you posted! So much fun to look at!

  6. I love what you're doing here! Designs are fabulous!
