It started with some fabrics....
Carkai (and some Doe) by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman
Karen Lewis Textiles and Blueberry Park (the latter for Robert Kaufman)
...and inspiration from this mini I made in the Blueberry Park swap (and now famous as featured in Australia's Make Modern Magazine, issue 12)
I LOVE how well Karen's and Carolyn's fabrics wrk together. For this quilt I excluded all fabrics with flowers as I wanted a more "masculine" look to it. Having been a regular customer of Karen's including signed up to her fabric club, I still had plenty to chose from.
Along the way, there was on casualty....
Testing various layouts in the blue section
All sewn together
I am trying to decide if I'll add a border, as I did on the mini version, and then this one is going off for longarm quilting. It'll be too much swearing involved if I was to do this one on my own machine.
