I designed this quilt with a “planets” feel in mind. After a lot of searching through bins of fabric and much layout work, we were happy with the first (of 3) strip set and did layouts. As Barbara pieced a block at a time, I pinned paper shapes onto the strip set where I wanted them, then the shapes were cut out. When all 20 blocks were completed, we did more design wall work for the final placements, which you’ll notice differs from the initial sketch. Then Barbara put it all together. My tentative name for this one is “Planet Flight”.
Here are several pictures so you can see how this was put together. Be sure to click the photos to see larger.
The idea for this came from a book titled Strips and Curves by Louisa Smith.
