HOYH: Part 1 is Launched


And so the journey begins..

The first thing to do is put the heart of this quilt into position. That place where the eye rests and returns and draws from. It's the centre of the scenescapes that surround it and it's the heartbeat behind this quilt. 

This is a flower with a star at it’s core that blooms out into three layers of expanding petals. The first layer consists of ‘heart’ shaped petals that come together circling the star. The second layer is perfectly sized and rounded for intricate fussy cutting or embroidery details and the third layer is a ring of leaves framing this beautiful, floral portal. 

This central focus reminds me of circular windows on old buildings and I love the possibility of how this motif can be transformed by fabric selections. Perhaps you also see a window, or maybe you see a town square or a floating and expanding flower head. Perhaps even, this is a kind of seasonal floral compass guiding all the elements that spring out from it. Who knows? This quilt design will be shaped by your love and your visions, so enjoy each step.


As for me, I'm still waiting for my fabric to arrive. It's actually due today, so as soon as I have it in my eager hands, I will be blogging my own process for creating Part 1. So if you'd like to wait until then to follow my lead before starting yous,  it will only be a few days. 

See you then!
