Quilts conjure up images of Summer in the country. I like that quilts provide a use for leftover odds and ends of fabric and that the designs are endless. I am going to help my mom make Gwenna a quilt for her bed (for the warmer months) out of leftover fabrics I have collected. I am so excited because I have never done this before! I think quilts feel really fresh and happy right now, and I love that they have a long history. Here are some of my inspirations:

Here is a gorgeous 1930's vintage Dresden quilt.
|What a statement this would make in a bedroom...it just screams "Summer!"|
|I am loving this bow tie design!|
|Look at the intricate pattern and charming fabrics of this quilt.|
|Incredibly sweet! I love the butterflies.|
|This pattern reminds me of my daughter's headboard fabric.|
My favorite designer, Sarah Richardson, uses quilts often: At her farmhouse and island cottage.
Sarah Richardson's daughters' room at their cottage.
Richardson's master bedroom at her Farmhouse. She designed the room around the sunny yellow-orange in the antique quilt she found at a flea market.
but it is perfect in this room and on this quilt.
My Mom made this pillow out of a patch from my Grandmother's baby quilt.
The quilt was in bad condition so this was a great way to salvage such a beautiful
piece of our past. Thanks Mom!
