So I am supposed to be cutting up some paper to make a pop up of Paris but a little procrastination never hurt anyone. Just flipping through my IPhoto library and came across a bunch of old quilts I made back in NYC.
Our dear friends Elke and Dakila were having a baby a few years back and I had told Elke I would make her a quilt. She decided to come with me to the City Quilter in NYC, my then local quilting shop to pick out the fabrics. I let her loose and at first I was a bit skeptical about the colors but after sitting with them for a bit I came up with this. I used a block pattern from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. The pattern was for the hot water bottle holder but assembled as a quilt it looks good. Along with the quilt I made a matching cushion with the left over block. That cushion has been remade due to use.
After Sebastian’s quilt I made a Pin Wheel quilt for a friend at Penguin. Jasmin was having a boy and thought it might be fun to make this.
Then I decided to make a Japanese inspired quilt from the Japanese Quilt Blocks Mix and Match.
Soon after this one I found out another friend was having twins. That meant two quilts. I hand picked about 20 different prints and started cutting. 2.5″ long pieces in two different design.
