I'm trying to build up a stash of simple boy/ girl baby quilts for gift giving.
I riffled through my fabrics and came up with this combination for a boys quilt.
I tried to stick with all similarly scaled dots/spots & added in the larger scaled spots for interest. The red fabric was for a pop of colour.
looking through my largish collection of fabric is a bit like looking through my wardrobe, I had a lot of "what was I thinking" when I bought that moments!
The idea for this little one partly came from Katie of Sew Katie Did, Katie has some fantastic ideas when it comes to half square triangles & her use of solids is amazing.
I also saw some art at the London Tate Modern gallery last year that was very graphic and a similar style. This little book also caught my eye whilst I was at The Liberty of London store.
Inspiration for quilting patterns are everywhere
If you have a link to share with a similar quilt - please leave a link in the comments. Its nice to see what other ideas are out there.
I like the randomness of it & the bits of red
I'm quietly enjoying our new clean back area of the house, especially the wall of book shelves.
I didn't really take before pictures or blog the process of our little renovation, we have so much more to eventually do - like the bathroom laundry & kitchen.....
for now I'm happy with a lot of light and white walls. I've added in a small pic below for you to see a little of a before & after.
I'm still moving furniture around & looking out for a few bits and pieces to add.
It all takes time.
Anyway back to the quilt top....
I need to think about how to machine quilt it
