Looking for something simple?
If you are in need of a simple quilt, try what I call color blocking. I saw something like this one on Instagram (sorry I no longer have the picture or remember who posted it) and I thought the possibilities for this quilt were endless, so I just had to give it a try.
The point of this quilt is that you are letting the colors and the quilting do all the talking.
This one goes from pinks to oranges.
But like I said, the colors are endless.
I can see this done up in a variety of blues......or how about some variation of grays?......or even crayola colors (rainbow colors). Just pick a color you love or that compliments the room you would use it in.
For this one I used a pantograph called "funky feathers petite". I felt this simple quilt was conducive to a very dense quilting pattern.
With a solid backing, the quilting really shows up well. Minky would work well here, too.
I have a panto that is zoo animals that I think would really look cute, too. Oh, the possibilities; and the colors just make me smile.
I can see more of these quilts in my future.
