The Kids World Quilt Update

Here’s an update on the ginormous quilt I’m making.  If you missed the info on this quilt, just go back one post!

I have 12 feet of grass completed!

I started working on the blocks yesterday and ran out of fabric.  I purchased all that fabric and ran out on the first day.  Yikes!  So my aunt and I headed to Gathering Friends Quilt Shop.  I picked up two more greens and headed home to sew.

The next step in the process is to sew these rows together.  Then the fun begins.  There is newspaper paper involved.  And some drawing.  Lets just say the grass isn’t going to be three straight, long rows.  It needs to have some curves and I’m adding a hill.

Do you want another clue?  I’m using this photo for inspiration!


I discovered this photo while searching for ideas for this quilt.  I found it on this web site.  Aren’t her quilts beautiful?

Now I bet you’re really wondering what this has to do with grass!!!  You’ll just have to wait and see.

If you’d like to see a compilation of some of the ideas I’m collecting, take a look at my Kids World board on Pinterest.

The next thing after that is to figure out how to do the gradient of the sky.  I think I have six shades of blue/turquoise to work with.  But first, back to the grassy knolls!!!

This is kind of like watching grass grow, huh???
