The Next Big Thing

I've been wanting to give my bedroom a bit of a makeover for awhile. A month or two ago, we got a good deal on some new furniture and that was a good impetus for me to get moving with the rest of the project, starting with a quilt.

After much online searching, I came up with a plan.

The inspiration:

The pattern:
Same as the one for this quilt, "Plain Spoken" from The Modern Quilt Workshop.

The fabrics:

Right now, I'm actually well into the project. The pattern is so simple that it comes together quickly. But, a queen-sized quilt is big. Bigger than anything I've made before. So, the number of blocks needed does make it a bit of a time suck. Tonight or tomorrow I'm hoping to get the blocks arranged in a layout I like.


  1. I like the colors. They will look wonderful together.

  2. I love your choice of colours - looks like you're well on the way to making a quilt that's going to look fabulous!
