Finally. Finally. Began cutting pieces for the twin duvet cover for my kid. I've been staring into space, staring at fabric, staring at flickr groups, staring at quilt books for so long. It felt good to cut something already.
The fabrics you see above are Anna Griffin Isabelle and Jennifer Paganelli Casey Scroll, which I'm going to combine with hopefully a pleasing result. I tried to buy enough should I get super crazy and decide to do a second cover for the other kid. We shall see. It's going to have to be a rousing success on the first one before I'd consider that.
I've settled on this (hopefully) simple chevron pattern that I whipped up in Illustrator, so what I'm cutting out is a bunch of triangles. The white triangles will all be the lighter prints, and the darker triangles will be the bright, saturated prints.
Wish me luck. My first large scale patchwork anything.
LATE NOTE: In true manic Larissa form, I've got almost all the triangles cut and... I hate it. Now I'm seriously thinking I'll turn the design into pinwheels with a white background. See, this is how a project that I originally thought would take a few hours (oh, I'll sew some big squares together, no big deal) snowballs into a project that will suck the life out of me for weeks.
