I’ve been playing around with quilt ideas in Illustrator for weeks, and I think I finally came up with something I want to move forward with:
It’s a mix of what I talked about in the last post about the twin quilt; a triangle quilt, but with the pops of color coming together like in a bow-tie quilt.
Here is a more literal bow-tie and pinwheel quilt design I came up with before settling on the above:
I’m still unsure about the fabrics I’ll be using, but I pulled a bunch from my stash that I’d like to use; I may still buy one or two more prints, to flesh out the colors more.
I’m super inspired by the colors in this easy knit baby blanket by Purl Soho:
I do plan on knitting her this blanket, too! After her lacey blanket, this should would be a no-brainer.
What do you guys think of my design? I’ll probably do something fun on the back again, instead of just doing a plain white back. I love the idea of quilts being semi reversible. ~.^
I LOVE all of it! I have been looking for a pallet of color to re-do my daughters room (she is 2 in July) and I LOVE that knit blanket too!! Now I want to try and make one!!!!
I love the quilts you made up – they BOTH look great! I do like the top one the best!
Cheers! Cant wait to see it done!!!
[…] thinking I should come up with a new pattern… I really loved the pattern I designed for Laelia’s twin quilt, so I just used that pattern, but in a very different colorway and I’m very happy with it! […]
