I spend far too much time on Flickr looking at quilts (let’s not talk of what I think of the Flickr redesign, because my mother always said that if I don’t have something nice to say, not to say anything at all) and scooping up ideas. I have dozens of quilts in my favourites, so why not share a few?!
These are a few of my favourite things at the moment, and you might spot a trend or two. The ever-present rainbow, of course; half-square triangles; and chevrons. There’ll be a post in the next two weeks with a chevron project I recently completed, but I’m keeping it seekrit for now, until the recipient receives it.
I bought a bunch of Tula Pink Saltwater fabric at the Festival of Quilts, which I hope to use for a diamond half-square triangle quilt. Will be sketching it out this weekend to see how it works out with the three colour ways before I start cutting into it. This, incidentally, is the only designer collection I have ever bought–I’m not generally a fan of collections, but Saltwater is just. perfect.
Is that Lava Meets Sea quilt not the most beautiful thing you’ve seen?! There’s a detailed post by Sarah to tell you how she did it and to share tips on colour and value. There are sketches and stuff! And there are so many other treats on her site–go give her a visit! I’ll stop with the exclamations now!
