I'm at that point in my year, where I am feeling the itch to start a new quilting project. I've completed three of my wips, and am putting off my others. There is such a lovely sense of anticipation when you decide on a new quilt, then spend hours perusing your stash, making fabric pulls and maybe purchasing a little more to complete it.
These are few of the inspiring quilts that have caught my eye lately and are tempting me to start something new. By clicking on the photo captions you will be taken to the maker's blog or Instagram page.
|Summer in Torquay by Wendy|
I had seen this quilt in Jen Kingwell's Quilt Lovely book, but it hadn't really inspired me until I saw Wendy's version in colours that appealed to me. I'm thinking my Denyse Schmidt stash would look pretty good in this quilt, though I do love this scrappy version
|Spring Fever by Joana|
This is another one from Jen Kingwell's book Quilt Lovely. Again not one I had looked at and thought 'ooh I must make that'. But when this fresh brighter coloured version popped up in my IG feed, I took another look at the pattern. This would be a great quilt for all those scraps or even my Liberty stash, do I want to do all that applique though.
|Folk Flowers by Amy|
This is another quilt that appeared in my IG feed the other day. Amy actually started this in a workshop with Anna Maria Horner herself (very envious am I, one day AMH will visit New Zealand). Anna Maria Horner's Folk Flower quilt has always appealed to me, however I really love the warm muted autumnal colour palette and the softly faded bohemian feel to Amy's version of it. The flowers are reverse appliqued ( a skill I have yet to learn) but at least it's with a machine.
|Whimsy - Candied Flowers by Linda|
|Treats by Tiina|
So lots of pretty inspiration, I wonder what I'll end up starting and whether I'll need to buy some new fabrics first .....
