14 Jan Design evolution and revolution
|Urban Trail – 86″ x 90″|
I’m sure you’ve all had quilts change from the time you first thought of them, bought some fabric or a pattern to the time you made them. Some change more than others. I designed what became Urban Trail back in June of 2008.
My design was clearly inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian and I intended to make it with at least semi-solid colors. Other projects intervened and this one stayed on the back burner until later that year when I saw the Wintergraphix line by Jason Yenter. It was love at first sight 🙂
I knew the fabric needed to be used in large pieces, so I ran home to see if it would work in my Mondrian style design. I enlarged the design, bought the fabric, made the quilt and Urban Trail was born.
But I’ve always wanted to go back a little closer to my original thoughts and I think now is the time. I’ve pulled some fabrics, done some refiguring of the sizes and I can’t wait to get started!

Do you ever make the same quilt more than once because different fabrics make such different quilts? Or are you a once is enough kind of quilter?
