Quilting Inspiration

I just found a new (to me) etsy shop that I find very inspiring. These quilts are epic.
She has so many great quilts for sale here.

I mean, come on - this is ridiculously cool.

I am going to gather inspiration from this bottom photo for my next baby quilt. I don't have the patience to make my quilt squares as small as her's so I'm going to layout it out on my computer and see how I can modify it for my skill set.

Watercolor Portrait

My good friends got married the end of this last summer and I wanted to create something unique for them as a gift. They both love hand-made things and after gathering inspiration from different individuals that create watercolor portraits for a living, I started working on one for them. This is how it turned out!

Liam's Quilt Complete

I finished up Liam's quilt just in time. I presented it to his parents a week and a half before he entered the world and they loved it. I'm very happy with how it turned out and I learned a lot from my first 60 degree angle triangle quilt. I am very fond of the colors I found to use and I think it will be perfect for little Liam.

Quilt for Liam

After I finish the quilt listed below I am taking another page out of craftyblossom's book to take a whack at this little gem. My family has a special little boy coming in November that I have decided to make it for.

I bought an equilateral triangle ruler for the project so I'm excited to see how that works for me. I will be sticking pretty closely to the color choices here, but will have to modify the size.

Some Inspiration

I am starting another baby quilt for a family friend. I am basing my design on this one by craftyblossom.

I haven't decided what color to use for the backing fabric or blanket binding just yet, but the top are these exact gray colors :) I like how simple and clean the design is.

Birthday Quilt for a Girl Named Everette

I also finished and mailed the quilt I was working on for that special little girl mentioned in a previous post: Everette. The fabrics look so great together and I hope she get's as much use out of this baby blanket as I did out of mine :)

There's is something about making things for others that brings me such joy when I'm working on a project. It keeps me motivated to see it through to the end.
