I’ve been really attracted to all the triangle patterns and quilts that I’ve seen around for a while now. I’d really like to base Laelia’s quilt on a pattern like this, but I’m worried about it being too trendy, and looking dated sooner than I’d like, so I’m trying to figure out a way to make it a little more timeless. I really love the colors of the above, but I love prints too much to make it all solid.
This quilt (above) has lots of prints, but then I think about how I’m very attracted to quilts that justs have solid color blocks. Then I remembered this quilt:
I love the tiny pops of color at each corner, and I will definitely hand tie the quilt like I did on Laelia’s baby quilt. But I really am having a hard time deciding between vintage, ethnic, or modern prints, and if it should be all prints or some print some solid (I super love just white with prints). Can I marry those ideas? I suppose it’s just a matter of finding prints that sit well together (or play off each other well). What do you guys think? Does anyone know of any other quilts or prints that might inspire me?! I feel like I’m stuck at a crossroads, and I just need that last spark to get me going. :)
