I'm planning that this quilt is going to be just as big - I'm aiming for 245x275cm when finished. And, my inspiration is some of the gorgeous stained glass windows I saw in churches and cathedrals in Europe. the design is still being worked out, but I had a spare half hour today, so I thought I'd try of the piecing technique I'm going to use. Now, I'm sure what I've done has a name somewhere in the quilting world, but I don't know it.
Basically, I took 6 squares of fabric, and cut them in half unevenly along 2 parallel sides. I then sewed them back together with a different design fabric. Then, I took those squares and cut them again, on the opposite sides. then I joined the squares up. Although, they aren't perfectly square - I'm going to have to decide if I like that look of off kilter squares, or if I am going to size each square before I sew them together. I'm leaning away from doing that, just a touch, because all up, this quilt is going to need about 2000 of those little squares. They're each about 5cmx5cm when finished.
I really love the vibrancy of the oranges - I'm also using a similar collection of blue fabrics, a red banding fabric, and a black based aboriginal-dot-painting-style fabric.
