Home sweet home wall hanging / mini quilt

As always, my projects started from sketching like this, from smaller pieces of paper to bigger and bigger one until finally coming to the real pattern stage. 

This is a Home Sweet Home project for our new home soon.  I am now in the middle of gathering fonts for the applique …. Besides that, I will add little 3 D candies applique for this project.  I am experimenting the technique now … ^V^

Hopefully the project will end up as what I wished for... wish me luck   (^o^)

I stuck half way while sketching out the design of this Home Sweet Home mini quilt.  I was struggling to decide on the details I am going to put in for this little quilt.  A little change in decision will make the following design to have a lot to amend.

 Finally I decided to choose the fabrics for the words first rather than bothering too much about the layout and detail first.  I know half way through I will surely have something to amend.  My main decision now is what kind of style should I use for my quilt, whether it is chic, country, elegant or Victorian etc.  Taking a look at my renovated new home, I will choose something floral and comfortable design, I like it nature and easy feeling in my living room. 

Few hours to choose fabrics ….. matching ... figuring out , throw out unsuitable ones ….. finally come to decide the fabrics I want for my quilt ^v^

It is a good idea for you to cut out small pieces of fabrics and match it to your background fabric.    Using this way, you won’t waste too much wrongly matched fabric.

Here are my chosen fabrics for my mini quilt today.  I am so excited to sew them to my mini quilt and see the result tomorrow .

(waiting for tomorrow to come **)
