Miki's Quilt

My mother requested that I make an Asian-themed quilt for her, queen-sized. I've never done a quilt this large before, so I'm going to do something very simple. I started off making some really easy quilt blocks with a stash of Asian fabrics I bought off of eBay, but not many of them go together very well. I have about 3 yards of an Asian fabric in my stash that I bought about a year ago and decided to incorporate that into my design. It's a very pretty pattern, so I used it as the centerpiece and surrounded it with the quilt blocks. I'm going to surround what I have so far with a black border, and then use the remaining stash-fabric to make a wider border around that. I'm hoping that'll give me the width and the length that I need to make it queen-sized. I might go searching for another fabric and use what I have along the long sides and use a different fabric along the short sides.. I haven't decided yet. This is definitely an easier quilt-top, but I didn't want to commit to something more than I could handle (I didn't really want to do a queen sized quilt; I would have rather done something much more intricate and make it throw-sized, but she wants something for her bed). The only other thing I have to decide is how I want to quilt the top... I don't know if I want to go with something geometric (because of the lines in the blocks) or if I want to go with something more organic... Once the top is finished I'll probably just sit on it awhile until I come up with something... Pics after the jump. Read more... )
