I have started a quilt intended for the grandson of a dear friend. I haven’t been given a brief – which I prefer. If a recipient has expectations, then the quilt will rarely match up unless they have shown me precisely what they want.
I have chosen a design with repeated Exploding Star blocks in primary colours. Each star uses three shades of one colour, a contrast colour, and a centre feature. I have chosen solids for the three colours, and dots for the contrast. The feature is a graphic design of cars. The background will be a variety of black, white and cream graphic prints.
I’m currently sorting my solids to give a good range of ‘boy colours’.
I have a varied collection of neutrals for the background that should work well.
