You know how people always say the inspiration can be found everywhere, right? Well, I'd like to show you where the inspiration for my newest quilt came from.
My daughter's t-shirt! As I was doing laundry I was so drawn to these pretty stripes of different widths that as soon
as I was done putting all the clothes away I headed straight for my fabric stash.
At first I wanted to go with all solid fabrics and mimic the t-shirt quite literally. I changed my mind, of course, and decided to use prints for the colored stripes instead. I wanted it to become a child's quilt so out came Walk in the Woods by Aneela Hoey, Woodland by Lecien, as well as some random polka dot and Kona white from my stash.
I cut the strips of different width and my quilt top was finished in no time. I did have a system with the stripes - each color/ pattern as well as the connecting white stripe was the same width (somewhere between 1" and 2.5").
I pieced the back using some more Walk in the Woods fabric as well as Kona white. I did straight line quilting along both sides of each white stripe and bound the quilt using hot pink and red polka dotty fabric. I love how pretty and bright this fabric is, such a wonderful counterpart to the crispness of Kona white.
And here it is, all nice and crinkly after being washed and dried. Aaaah!
Have a wonderful weekend, Svetlana.
