Planning is one of my favorite aspects of the entire quilting process. Sometimes it's wonderfully refreshing to sew without a plan and see where you end up, but planning and sketching and even dreaming about how a project might develop are inspiring activities too!
For quite a while I've been basting my hexagons without a real plan for finishing. While doing some studio cleaning this weekend I found a yellow polka dot fabric that just seemed to be the perfect center for my hexagon flowers. I stitched the aqua flower and then had to "audition" a few others.
So this is where I'm going...scrappy "same color" flowers all with yellow polka dot centers. Eventually I'll join them with white hexagons. I'm hoping this will be a lap sized quilt, so I'll definitely be basting more hexagons while starting to put the individual flowers together. I'm happy with this plan--and as I've been cleaning I've come up with some other plans, too!
What are your favorite ways to plan projects...it's always so fun to hear what others are doing!
Have a wonderful weekend!
