Positive Queen Quilt Top, first edition

I take getting a commission for a custom quilt pretty seriously.  When Amy asked me to make her a certain quilt, I knew I could do it, but there was no pattern or tutorial for a similar quilt, that I could find.  I decided that my best course of action would be to make a "trial" quilt top, writing a tutorial as I went.  The quilt Amy wants is made of solids, and very modern.  I wanted to keep the trial quilt top modern, but I wanted to use fabric from my stash.  These are the fabrics I used.

I kept pulling and rearranging fabric, until I was pleased.  Then I got going with the math and writing the directions.  I'm going to post the tutorial a bit later, it'll be here, if you're interested.

The quilt top turned out perfect, to me, and it was pretty easy to put together.  It's just very time consuming putting together a queen size and wrangling all that fabric.  I told Bob we may need a larger house, if I keep this up!  (Just kidding, and he knows it.)

Here's a shot, outside on the grass, and below on my bed.

I'm thinking, this first edition of the quilt, may need to stay at Casa Prytz!

I'm linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday.
