Have You Ever Made a Quilt?

Have you ever seen something that just sticks in your head and you still think about it months later? I see lots of things I like but there are only certain things that catch my attention for the long haul. When that happens I it’s a sure sign that it’s really a great fit for our home.

My most recent infatuation of this sort has been with this quilt.

I saw this triangle quilt a few months ago from Audire at Blue is Bleu. I think it would be great for Nikolas’ room which needs some love and attention. I love the idea of snuggling up in a handmade quilt.

I’ve been looking around for a good tutorial and I think I found one here. It looks simple enough for a first quilt. I’ve put together a color combination I like from Fabric.com. This is probably one of Ray Ban outlet those long haul projects that I’ll put down and pick back up. I like to have a bunch of projects going at the same time (if you couldn’t tell already).

So my question today is has anyone ever sewn a quilt? Anything I need to know? Any tips?

On the Hunt

I thought it be fun from time to time to take you on the hunt with me for my latest obsession. This time around it’s for our latest project, our Master Bedroom we’re redesigning. So far we’ve changed out the side tables and lightened up the bedding, added some vintage chairs that are waiting to be reupholstered, and gave the whole thing a nice fresh coat of neutral paint.
