Once again, an announcement has sent me rushing back to my ideas notebook on Evernote and old quilting magazines to find a lovely genderless baby quilt design that also reflects the personality of the future parents.
I know I want to use Inklingo because a lot of the piecing will be done on my commute. There are so many ways to go with this quilt. The mother is a long and dear friend from junior high and I want this to be extra special.
Here are the notes I have so far. I am still undecided on design and fabric. I’ve looked at so many online fabric bundles, too. I’ve considered a Hawaiian appliquÃ© quilt, Hawaiian fabrics (she lives in Hawaii, did you guess?) and looked through the Inklingo shopping book.
I find exploring ideas on paper helps bring some focus and reminds me of other trains of thought. I’m still not sure about anything, but at least I have until April to get it done!

I wish I could keep a little book like that with ideas – I am forever scratching things out though and then crossing out whole pages that it doesn’t look very great. I think I need to draw out ideas on scratch paper first and then redraw into a book!
I never understood how to use a sketchbook until I was much older. The important thing to remember is not to cross out any ideas but to turn the page and keep evolving them. I find going back through my sketchbooks really helpful as it reminds me why I didn’t choose a direction and sometimes spawns a better idea!
