Doll Quilt Swap 13 - Sketching and Planning!

Just after Thanksgiving we received our partner info for the thirteenth round of the Doll Quilt Swap. I'm really excited about this, and I'm feeling really inspired by my partner's style. 

So here's my plan (so far), I'm going to start piecing some foundation paper pieced stars, English paper pieced stars (like those Camelot stars), free pieced stars, and some half square triangle chevrons to mix things up. The scale of these stars will vary from about 4" - 8". 

I'm not quite settled into a color scheme yet, but since my goal for swaps is to challenge myself, I'm pretty sure I'm going to try to accomplish a balanced low volume, scrappy, grey background. I have a few fabrics in mind... but it's going to be strange for me.

PS: Linking up for WIP Weds @ Freshly Pieced!
