Today I'm sharing my most recent finish: this Christmas quilt Doug and I gave to two of our very favorite people.
Earlier this year, my mother asked me to make her a nautical themed quilt for my parents' bedroom at the lake house. She wanted something simple and very "primary and almost childlike". I immediately thought of this quilt by Ashley over at Film in the Fridge.
We decided to keep the palette quite simple: bold shades of red and blue, with some warm neutrals added in, set against a creamy white background.
Today, I'd like to share a couple of things.
First, my Etsy shop is up and running. I've added new tab under the blog title with a direct link for your convenience. Most of my quilts are commissioned works; however, from time to time I will make something on a whim because something inspires me. These are the quilts you will find for sale in the shop. I will post here when I list new items. If you want to receive automatic updates, I suggest following with Bloglovin' or following the RSS feed (see left side bar).
Next, the Modern Quilts: Redesigning Traditions exhibit at the Ontario (California) Museum of History and Art is now open. If you are on Facebook, you can see some great photographs by Paul Broeker here. This is the quilt I have hanging in the exhibit. If you scroll through Paul's pictures, you'll see it hanging among some beautiful quilts.
Earlier this year my Aunt Mary contacted me about making a quilt for my cousin and his fiance. Of course I said yes! We decided on a travel theme with a modern-industrial vibe.
I wanted to take a moment to share the details of the Modern Quilts: Redesigning Traditions exhibit at the Ontario, CA Museum of History and Art. My quilt, Hexie Rebellion, was accepted to hang in the show. This quilt is a modern interpretation of a traditional hexagon quilt.
Just a quick little post to give you the option to follow with Bloglovin. I've added an icon to the top right sidebar for you convenience.
