Now starts the Big Project!

My closest sister is turning 50 on the 5 th of February and I have decided that she needs a Whole Cloth Quilt !

So I have conned her in to make me a drawing of a lion head ( She is crazy good at drawing, ) I told her that I needed something new to practice sewing on. She bought it! Her last name is lion as married.

I will use the lion head as a center medallion and on the upper part I will quilt her nick name and on her hubby´s side his nick name.

I have decided to make 2 rectangular quilts that when finished I will join in the middle so it will fit their double bed.

That way it will be more manageable for me to quilt.

I have bought the fabric. Light grey for the front and light purple toward pink ish... for the back.

I have been drawing on paper to try to determent what I want to fmq. And this weekend I will start prepping the fabric, drawing center lines and other marking lines needed to center design elements.

I will post picture as soon as I have something to photograph.

I will relay heavily on you support and opinions.

Wish me luck! I might have chew down on something to big ;-)

Here are some example of design that I drew last night.
