I like the rail fence quilt (I'm partial, because I made one too Wink )  The retro fabrics are wonderful!

This is really sweet.  I love the color combo.  And the hand quilting is amazing!  Really... I don't think I could ever have the patience.  That is one lucky baby.

How does it feel to know you've created an heirloom?Huh??  Because you did you know. Smiley

You have a great eye for color/fabrics.  This works really well together and is a perfect quilt for a little kid!  Not bad for a first quilt!!!! =)

I really like this quilt as well.  I don't usually like big blocks of color - but I guess the texture of the fabrics keeps this interesting.  This is the kind of quilt I would actually *use* as opposed to just looking at because it's pretty.

Fun, spunky AND sophisticated....what more could you ask for in a quilt???

That's exactly what I think - funky, fun, but also modern and cool.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors.  I think that's the look/feel that I've been trying to articulate while planning my next quilt.  MAN - it's just awesome!  Love that it's just simple blocks but they look really cool because of the way the colors line up.  I think the shades are great... low contrast makes for a nice, easy on the eyes, mellow kind of thing.  And mellow is good for making a baby go to bed!  Hmm... will need to stare at this quilt some more.

Do you think the colors are true in this picture, are they brighter/lighter/darker in real life?

Thanks!  I do like some of the quilts on that link.

And by 'old ladyish' I don't mean so much scrappy quilts - because some of those look really cool.  Maybe 'old lady' is the wrong way to describe them.  I don't like quilts that are done in like two or three perfectly coordinating fabrics with large blocks of color - like the really matchy-matchy kind.  I also do *not* like tied quilts - even though I don't do much actual quilting, I'd rather see a straight stitch-in-the-ditch than a bunch of ties.  I love batiks and should maybe use some of those... I've already got a couple of sarongs in my bedroom so batiks would blend right in.

I guess what I really need to do is just hang out in the fabric store for a few hours and sort out which fabrics I really love.  Then maybe the idea for the pattern will develop.

So pretty!  I would have loved it as a little girl... heck I love it now!
618  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: fall quilt on: September 19, 2005 11:32:35 AM
Wow - I love it!  Flying geese is one of my favorite quilt patterns... and I love the colors you picked (that's the hard part for me too).  Good job!
619  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Cool but classic quilt ideas? on: September 19, 2005 10:46:56 AM
I want to make a new quilt for my bed.  I'm trying to figure out what kind of pattern to use.  I kind of like the old, traditional styles (nine patch, rail fence, flying geese), but don't want my quilt to look too old-lady-ish, or too little girlish for that matter.  I also don't want it to look really hip now, but then be tired of it in a couple of years.

So I guess I'm looking for ideas for a classic look, something that won't look old fashioned now, but will still look good 10 years down the line.   Any ideas?  Examples?  And I'm thinking of going with a red and/or kind of asian theme with the fabrics (not entirely sure).

Not to be a total nerd, but Strawberry Shortcake wears a RED dress, white apron & pink florally hat. 


So don't stress out if you can't find pink gingham.  Also that Simplicity pattern is really easy (so far).  I'm using it for my Red Riding Hood costume.
