I started on a new quilt last week, my sister has been asking me to make her one for about a year, ha! and I've always had other things I've needed or *wanted* to do instead, she's also quite the fuss-pot so I had to think of a design and fabrics that were just right for her.
She's not really into pastel colour schemes - like I am of course! ;) So I had to avoid pinks, yellows and anything too 'cutesy', she likes more of a darker colour palette with blues and reds, so this is what I have come up with so far ...
It's quite reminiscent of my previous quilt the 'prairie quilt' as I called it, because I've used a lot of my Shelburne Falls prints again, and added some more blue fabrics from 'Happy Go Lucky'. I've gone with an alternating flying geese pattern, which was completely inspired by the APC quilt they did for Anthropologie, kind of modern meets traditional?
Oh, and here's another little Jeni Baker drawstring bag I whipped up recently, using some of the latest fabrics available at Sew and Quilt :) I just had to make one so I could use that super sweet airmail stripe print as bag handles! Isn't it the cutest! Perfect for binding's I think, too.
Hope you all are having a happy and productive Monday folks! xo
