Yea, yea, I know it’s not Monday here yet BUT it’s 109 degrees out and I just got done wrestling a king sized quilt through my little machine. And it has to be Monday somewhere already right? 😉
My creative inspiration this week and almost every week in regards to quilting is Denyse Schmidt. I have all of her books, several patterns AND three of her quilts from Sarita before she stopped selling them. I count myself very lucky. My fave of the three is this baby circular quilt. It is front and center in my sewing room and keeps me warm draped over my legs on cool days.
This weekend I decided to quilt up my Plus/Minus Quilt and looked to Denyse and this quilt for guidance. I decided to home machine quilt it in the concentric circles I so love in her baby quilt and I was guided by her color scheme to add similar colors in the binding. I used a linen for the back and an ikea canvas for the binding.
As painful as it was to quilt this baby, I really love it especially the binding and the simple back. I hope you are find a ton of creative inspiration this week. I would love to know and see what is inspiring you.
