Today’s quilt post is one I’m excited to share with you all. Holly of Bijou Lovely has become a very good friend of mine so when she came out with her first fabric line with Cloud 9 Fabrics I was so excited for her. I’m convinced there is no limit to her creative talents so it’s no surprise that her Brush Strokes fabric line combines her painting talents with her sewing talents. Most of her prints are watercolor paintings converted to a fabric medium using her signature color combos.
I was glancing around my house yesterday and realized I still have a handful of quilts I haven’t shared on the blog yet. One of those quilts is my Vintage Picnic City Tiles Quilt. I released this pattern a few months back and included instructions for an 18inch block and a 12inch block. This Vintage Picnic version is the 12inch block option.
This black and white stripes quilt was my first finish this winter.
I’m still loving solids and I love the simplicity of black and white.
When I saw Rad and Happy using flannel as the backing on
some of her quilts I had to make my own. Living in what feels
like the arctic we are in desperate need of warm cozy quilts around here.
I whipped this one together in a few days. Sometimes I love
the satisfaction of a quick project.
I machine bind all of my quilts. Mainly because I’ve never attempted
hand binding and I’m afraid I won’t be very good at it ;) I’ve kind of
combined a few tutorials I’ve found online into something
that works for me. I’ll have to include a full post sometime on my methods.
I wasn’t kidding about the arctic. It looks like this outside for way too many months
around here. We use all of the quilts laying around this house!
And our fireplace. We use this fireplace a lot.
This triangle quilt is my first attempt at triangles.
It is not as easy as it looks…lol. It’s a bit wonky
and doesn’t line up perfectly but it was for my new nephew
and I’m thinking he won’t care ;)
I made my own triangle template for this quilt.
