Twin Quilt Designs

Twin Quilt Designs

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:

TwinQuilt_TrianglesIt’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:TwinQuilt_Bowties_Pinwheels

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!!!


  2. […] 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! […]
