Fishbowl Quilt Design

November 10, 2008

There are many quilt patterns out in the world, that’s for sure. But ever since I was a kid, I’ve had trouble separating a pattern from the colors of its fabric. When I was little, my mom would take me to look at the huge McCalls or Simplicity books. I was supposed to find a dress she could make me, but I was always so distracted by the fabrics, that I never saw what the actual pattern was like.

I’ve seen this a bit with quilts too. When I see a quilt made in various ginghams, I have a hard time imagining it in anything but gingham. Or a quilt in pastels I make in other pastel fabrics. However, as I’ve started designing my own quilts, I see them in any color I want!

One of the quilts I’m really excited about is below: the Fishbowl. I wanted something for kids and found this amazing Heather Ross fabric that is whimsical, modern, and young. Perfect for a little boy (or girl) obsessed with the ocean! Completed size will be at least 42″x42″ but since I may add another border, I’m not sure how it will look upon completion. At least 3.5′ square though. I can’t wait to get started!
