It started with Maribel (Annabel Wrigley for Windham) arriving at M is for Make, plus a discount off sale items so the Flight Map Quilt pattern (Anna Maria Horner) snook into my basket. I've had my eye on this pattern for ages, years even. It's a 16-block design using clever variations on a colour theme with different prints. It's not the most straightforward pattern and it does take some puzzling out so I decided to draw out the block in Touchdraw so I could colour in and work out which fabric was which and match up the quantities.
I haven't made a pattern where you cut everything at the beginning and then complete the same block X number of times for a considerable time but this one has a lot going on to maintain my interest. The logical part of me questions whether an house-hold of three with only two bedrooms really needs more quilts, but my heart rules, colours in and gets ready to order what I need to make this a reality. The colouring in really helps to understand the colour placement. There are 20 different fabrics so I've made a grid so I'll know what is what. Eternal Maker are stocking some of the Maribel range too and I'm mixing in some of my stash and a scrappy element to make it a little more me.
