Oh my! I LOVE this!!!! So cute :)
great quilt!PS - spreading the word - TOMORROW is LAST DAY to *Enter Camille Beckman Luxury Give-Away Here* PLEASE come over and join!*kiss kiss*Erika
Reminds me of the quilt my Mom made when I was in college!
My step-mom made me a quilt out of old jeans when I was a teenager. It was such a cool and special treat that I still have today! xo,nicolettehttp://www.simplycolette.blogspot.com
I really like how the guitar looks next to the pictures.
Ooh, so very cozy!
I would love to make a quilt one day too but I think I'll start with a crib size one for my little guy...baby steps :)
Gorgeous use of color!http://www.cuppycakeme.blogspot.com
I love quilts and I would love to have one for my bed:) This one looks beautiful:)Kisses
that squishy dog doesn't hurt the cozy factor!
The quilt is beautiful - but so is the rest of the room. I love the guitar on the wall! When I took tie-dye in high school we made patchwork quilts at the end, and mine is still on my bed. Helps me through long New England winters.
Which is cuter? The quilt or that dog?!http://ashleyanderic.blogspot.com
I bought a huge patchwork quilt a few months ago. Don't you just love that a quilt can turn a bedroom from being "just that room I rent" to "that cozy place I call home"?
I love this photo! My great grandmother, a seamstress, saved bits of all of her grandchildrens dresses and ties throughout their childhood. Out of the old clothes, she made the most beautiful quilt I've ever seen! Passed down from my mother, it's been my favorite possesion since childhood. :)
Id love to be able to do one too, they make things look so homely.x
I love quilts too! In fact, my mother is a quilter, which is why I know this quilt is a log cabin pattern. :)
Me too! I've always wanted to make one. I've been saving sraps for so long, I'm probably close to having enough. Now I just need to actually do it.... :)
Ooo, I love quilts! I have made a few for my kids, and my mom-in-law is an expert quilter (she's won awards and stuff!). We keep many of her quilts rolled-up in baskets in all the bedrooms for extra chilly nights.I'm also saving some of my children's clothes to patch together into a memory quilt. I hope by the time they are grown I'll have enough to give it to them.
i have tried quilting but it is just TOO much for me. I don't do well with precise measurements and symmetry and stuff. but I am making a crocheted blanket for my bed and that is coming along nicely!
It really does look incredibly cosy! I wish I had a quilt like that today. It's a standard wintery, rainy day in Manchester.www.dressingmissdolly.co.uk
That style quilt is real easy to make, its called the log cabin pattern and you can make the top in a day. i did, with my sister's help. now i just need to finish it so i can use it!
I wish we could all take a few steps back and reduce our lives to that of more simplistic terms, like this wonderful work of art. It's still beautiful and strong and warm and supportive, but it's simple and humble. I think quilts make the world a better place.
Patchwork quilts are so adorable; I have one my Mom bought me from New Hampshire. It's gorgeous!
You literally want to wrap up in the comfort and familiarity that a patchwork quilt brings!
My aunt has made a quilt out of all my dad's shirts. It's such a cozy reminder of him. :)
An idea for your future quilt: I made a simple one using my daughter's baby/toddler clothes and gave it to her as a gift when she was older. :)
Nothing like a good old fashioned log cabin quilt! Somehow this looks current and beautiful! The guitar is cute on the wall - maybe I'll use this idea for my 14 yr old's new room. I'll have to show her - she may want the puppy too!
aww that whole room has such a sweet, folky vibe!
ooh, I love this! I've always wanted to have a simple, white guest room with a colorful quilt.
this room is such the perfect blend of modern and classic/homey :) love it
Yeah quilts are so cool...I'm actually working on a couple granny square blankets to put up in my shop soon. They're not the same, but I still love that retro feel they give off :)xo,Cassie(Moon Face)
oh, susie, that is a brilliant idea!
Didn't care much for the quilt, but I love the guitar hanging on the wall, and the beautiful dog laying on the bed. I want one just like that!
lady lyles, that's amazing! and whitney, i totally agree. makes a room feel like home for sure.
I love old quilts. My mom is a quilter so I always grew up with beautiful handmade creations as blankets and even had one as my comforter at college. I think you would really enjoy her work she does amazingly creative things with fabric http://www.etsy.com/shop/forcomfort
Joanna- I just wanted to let you know that thanks to your post yesterday, last night I had my first dream about nursing my baby-to-be :) It was so sweet and intimate. I was sitting on a deck over the mountains, which makes no senses because I live in the midwest in the middle of fields of wheat.Either way, thank you for that little bug in my mind and my sweet dream. I think it's moments like that that turn women into mothers while they are pregnant. Aura
That quilt is awesome. I'm in the process of making my first one as we speak. Fingers crossed it looks as good as that one. Yeah right! xx
My granny likes to make something like that in cold winter evenings...It looks so comfy.
I love quilts especially for kids rooms - I will be soon turning my son's nursery into a toddler boy room and a quilt would be perfect!Love your blog! I am a new blogger too ...xo,Rali
I agree! This quilt is lovely. My mom and I were out thrifting on Saturday and I happened upon the most lovely quilt but the cost was over $400. Still looking though!
I made one for a customer last year and I've wanted one since! Love log cabin quilts, especially when they're all scrappy like in the picture!
I love log cabin quilts! so easy to make and they always looked perfect. I've made 2 toned ones for all the daughters and granddaughters in my family, and used the scraps to make a lovely patchwork for my grandma!
lovely quilt! I also love patchwork in fashion: a patchwork bag or gloves are on my wishlist this fall.
I have a quilt from my stepdad's mother and it is the most comfortable blanket around! She sewed my name and the year into the quilt and I know I will treasure for years to come so it's sweet to know how long I've had it for.
We recently switched to a quilt (my grandmother's) for our bedroom. We absolutely love it because of the warm feeling it gives. Love this pic!
I would have never thought a quilt could look so cool! Love the room set up.
I think I'm going to have to pull mine out of the closet! I got mine from my best friends mom as a graduation present, I love it oh so much!
i love quilts! There's something very personal about them! Hand selecting every patch of fabric/patter..... so special!
I love the way this bright quilt looks with the stark white walls of this room. Lovely!
How nice. I also love the guitar displaying so effortlessly up there.
new bedroom plan. thanks for this! just what i was wanting.
I just had a quilt made for my college-age daughter from all her favorite high school tshirts. It's a great way to save those memories! see: http://racingyogagirl.blogspot.com/2010/11/tshirt-quilt.html
I agree with you, quilts do brighten up a room! There's just something so homey and comforting about them! Maybe it's because they used to be hand made by grandmothers and aunts... :)
My grandmother still makes the "real" thing - hand quilted - quilts for all of our family members' weddings, anniversaries, new babies...This is more my speed : Check out this entry at Pink & Polka Dot...http://pinkandpolkadot.blogspot.com/2010/10/lazy-girls-quilt-tutorial.html
