We made this colour block quilt for our good friend Laure’s little girl Anna. We decided to keep the patterns super simple (euhm, not less work intensive though) and work with bright colours. Our main inspiration was this ixxi ‘loco’ wall mural:
If you don’t know ixxi, check them out here: http://www.ixxidesign.com/ great budget friendly solutions to make a statement on a blank wall. I especially love the rijksmuseum plates design, but you have the choice of a wide variety of designs, or you can upload your own.
The inspiration sorted, the only thing left to do was make the actual quilt. Here’s a quick run through of materials and step by step of the process.
My post comes a bit late in the day, I’ve just come back from a long weekend in Belgium to celebrate my birthday (on the 1st of April, you know what that means…). I had a great time catching up with friends and I received some lovely presents (the main one being a brand new shiny sewing machine, more on that later).
So with all that celebrating combined with the glorious weather the past few days, I haven’t been very busy this week making things. The project I’ll share with you today then is a little baby quilt I made a while ago, almost a year in fact, for the first baby to arrive in our circle of friends. It’s more or less the project that made me discover how much I liked crafting, so it’s a very special one for me.
