Purple Clematis Wall Hanging, Part 1

Posted in Peeking Behind the Easel, and Sewing

I rarely used a pattern when creating a quilt. I usually have an imagine in mind and the trick is figure out how to make the imagine a reality.  If I am designing something  way out of the box, I use the tracing paper sheets taped together to draw out the actual quilt and proceed to make  the pattern pieces. In the case of this quilt, graph paper worked  just fine to draw out my design.

The little notebook on the right has the quilt idea that I am working on. I sketch out sewing ideas the same way I do for painting ideas. The graph paper has the nuts & bolts measurements and design for this quilt.

I wanted the quilt to be a vertical rectangle with a center panel of painted flowers. The sides will be narrow strips that picked up the colors of the flowers. The main color will be white to give the over all quilt a fresh, bright, contemporary  look.  I have finished the center strip of painted flowers.

I used photos of clematis taken in the yard as my reference.  Stay tuned to see the finished quilt – it is almost finished!
