January Quilt

Mexico 2 07 016

This quilt is a January gift to myself.  I have so many beautiful fabrics I wanted to incorporate into one quilt and this simple triangle design suited the large and small print fabrics really well.  I tend to decorate with a lot of white, so I wanted to bright colorful throw I can sit in my living room or lay over the end of my bed.  It measures 60" x 70".  I’ll have more to show you of this one soon after I get the dang binding sewn on!

What a great "wintertime" quilt! We need all that color to keep us chirked up. The simple, old designs and blocks are timeless . . . they look as good today as they did 100 years ago. Beautiful!

Jennifer said...

Really lovely! And your corners are all matched up so nicely, too. Mine are always like a quarter inch apart. :)

Beautiful and fun! You did a great job on this! love it!

Calico Road said...

WOWZA! Looks beautiful, how big are your squares?

Melanie said...

I love, love, love these prints together! I tried to pull something like this off recently, but mine was too busy. I think the combination of larger and smaller scales works beautifully together. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Rinachiyya said...

Lovely .You do amazing work and so quick too.

a little bit biased said...

Yes, it's beautiful and such a fun color palette. I hope we get to see pictures of it in your house, around all that white, I'm sure it will be stunning!

Worknprogress said...

absolutely gorgeous!! your website has been a bit of an inspiration to me, as i am starting my first quilt and hoping that i'll be able to make it half as beautiful as your creations.

Beth said...

What a great quilt for yourself. I love all the bright colors. I can't wait to start a quilt just for me. . . but I suppose I should finish one of the other 4 that I have started for others.:)

smallgrapes said...

Gorgeous!!! Such a vibrant and lovely color palette. It will be fantastic with your whites!

Keriann said...

beautiful as always!

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Love your colors. That will look super against your white things. Getting ready for the baby??? I only wished I had that much energy when I was pregnant last year. Mine turns 1 on the 26th! Man did that year fly by. Are you going to add a border? Are they from various fabric lines or all the same? Jenn

Jeni said...

Love at first sight!!! It's fun looking at all the different fabrics.

Linnea said...

Very beautiful. I love that even with so many prints and colors all mixed together nothing seems to get lost. Each print stands out...and yet blends in 'perfect' harmony.

It will look awesome contrasting against a lot of white!

Levin said...

pretty!
