CAUTION: Imagination Required!

This may be a stretch...but bear with me!  I have this idea in my mind - its fighting to get out!  The end goal is to have a lap size quilt ready by Christmas for my son.  I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!

I was 'awarded' custody of this awesome Ikea fabric from my daughter. (see the family theme)  When I saw it, I fell in love with it.  That feeling quickly turned into an idea or two and here I am!  

Plan:  The Ikea fabric will be the backing.  On the front I would like to mimic...in an artsy way...the windows.  Instead of the dark gray background, I plan on using a deep, dark blue. 


This is the beginning of the window interpretation.  Only two blocks so far.  I'm using hand dyed fabric for the most part.  Same colors as the Ikea fabric.  I know, a few more blocks would certainly help.  



The dark blue looks black in these pictures.  Trust me.  It really is blue!  I sometimes look at my creative ideas and wonder:  'Are You Mad Woman?'


This is going to be continued...I hope to have many other blocks tomorrow.  Maybe then it will come together for me!  (and you!)

  8. I have a hard time "seeing" concepts (unless they are my own), so I am very excited to see this finished product! I'm still thinking about that car quilt idea, too...Once the girls are gone, I am looking forward to spending some time in my sewing room!
