Now that I have completed my very first quilt ever, I’m getting the itch to make another. One that I can keep at home and snuggle up with on the sofa with a cat, a cup of coffee, and a book. I can’t help it, it’s quilt season, ya’ll.
First, I need a little inspiration to get me going.
Here are some lovely quilts I’ve stumbled across on the internets.
Quilt by Jessica Ogden – New York TImes
Broken Dishes Baby Quilt, found on The Purl Bee
Now let’s see some quilts I saw in September at the 2012 Capital of Texas Quilt Fest! Yes, I went to a festival of quilts, and yes, it was awesome. Over 350 handmade quilts, all different shapes, sizes, textures, colors, you name it. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Project of Doom, by Jennifer Ofenstein. Harry Potter fandom!
Lost Cavern, by Barb Forrister (<—— visit her site to have your mind blown by quilts)
Laguna Morning, by Sara Sharp.
These were just a teeny tiny sample of the Quilt Fest, put on by the Austin Area Quilt Guild. It seems like such a great community of quilting souls! Maybe I’ll see you there next year, with my very own work on display. I better get started soon.
