a quilt idea

I have had this quilt idea in my head for a while but I never got around to it. Till I visited my sister and was totally inspired with her passion for quilting. She showed me some tips and helped me figure out how to make my idea work. :)

Here are my fabrics

Here is my design
pendant quilt design
I was too scared to start chopping my fabric apart so I scanned all my fabrics in and made a "quilt" in Photoshop. It is supposed to be a twin but it isn't very to scale, I think it will end up being bigger and with more flags. Maybe I will add a border to it. Drawing the design is as far as I have gotten, I'll update you as soon as I get more progress made.

Thanks Kate, I went to Jo-anne fabrics to find almost all my fabric. I just bought more at Wal-mart and a cute local quilt shop. :) I cant wait to get going on it!

I think you should print your digital quilt and make it into a canvas or frame it to go in the room that houses your quilt! Very pretty!

This is so pretty!! I want to digitally make my quilts before I sew them, how FUN! I may have to make a penndant quilt too :). Have fun with the quilting bug. Once it bites you... well you just can't stop.

Annie Carie, Thanks for giving me the bug! You really taught me a lot about quilting that I didn't know. With your tips quilting is actually easier than I thought. :)
