Here's a good one for all you creative ladies/and gents...
My son is graduating in the spring from high school, and I promised him I'd make him whatever style/color quilt he wanted as his present. Here's what he wants:
A queen size quilt that looks like a super-nova, which is an exploding star. Very bright, explosion in the center that fades out to black space. I showed him lone star patterns, etc., but they are all too symetrical for him. He wants it to actually look like it's exploding!
I did a search on google, and actually found a pattern called Super-nova, but it's not what he's looking for - too perfectly symetrical.
To make matters worse, I'm a semi-new quilter, only been quilting for 2/1/2 years or so, and only completed 5 quilts. I machine quilt, and have a Grace GMQ frame with a Brother PQ1500 machine, and I piece on a Pfaff 7570.
Have I bitten off more than I can chew??? Any brilliant suggestions for me, anyone??
Any help appreciated. I've got to have it finished by Mid-May.

laura, it shouldn't be as hard as you think, have your son rough sketch out what he's thinking.
your idea on a lone star could be quite cool too. let me see if i can find some graph paper online that is in a diamond shape for you to color out a pattern gini
gini in north idaho
choose the iso metric graph and you can print this out to use for coloring a design you can choose different sizes gini
linda, the isometric design is an equilateral triangle. two of them together make the lone star diamond gini
Thank you Gini for the link to the graph paper, and thanks Nana for the encouragement. I CAN do this, and all of you have been helpful..
I'll keep you all posted with what I come up with, and then maybe you can help me figure out how to accomplish it!
