for some reason i’ve been super obsessed with quilts lately. i currently have three that i’m ‘working on’ or starting. i have a feeling this may be a common occurrence with quilters.

why the obsession? i blame the blog ‘in color order’. this woman is seriously beyond talented and every quilt (and vintage sheet wreath) she makes i feel the need to make as well.

one of her most recent creations (and hands down my favorite [which for those of you who follow me on pinterest already know this as i think i pinned the same pictures a dozen times]) is her ‘dream on quilt’.

beautiful. right? and, hopefully, seems simple enough. i’ve ordered the charm packs and corn yellow fabric to copy this master piece. i can’t wait to get started.

‘they’ are calling for a wet summer, so hopefully this quilt project will make the wettness a little more tolerable. i hope. and if the rain is even worse than anticipated i’ll be making this quilt next.

    I adore the madras quilt. Siiiiiiigh!

    Yes, multiple ongoing projects and a host of others on the wish list are common to quilters. We just can’t help ourselves. So much fabric, too little time.

    I’m looking forward to seeing yours come into existence this summer.

    I love them. But, wait? Did you finish your quilt with all the fabrics you received?

    I can’t sew for the life of me, but, man, I’m glad you’re still around. Missed you, lad!

    Can’t wait to see your finished quilts! Also, do you read the blog Film in the Fridge? Her quilts are a-mazing! (And she just had a baby and is still able to make some amazing quilts.) Inspiration here: http://www.filminthefridge.com/

    Patchwork makes me swoon, too! There’s something so folksy and comforting about it. I’m slowly amassing a fabric collection but I have yet to try my hand at quilting. One of these days I’ll squeeze it in amongst the furniture painting, baking, raising animals (not to mention my human kid!) and candle-making. 🙂 In the meantime I’ll live vicariously through your quilting adventures, Michael!

    Take care,
    Erin

    P.S.–I found a wonderful Depression-era quilt at an antique fair recently that I just love. Since you’re a quilt lover, I thought you might like to see it. Scroll to the bottom of this post for the photos:

    Oh what a lovely quilt. What a great way for you to get your “quilt” on!

    Good luck with the fabric for the madras. The swatch (1st block on left, second row from the top) is a very hard fabric to find. I happened to have fallen in love with this very same fabric about 5+ yrs ago. I kept every little scrap and sliver I could keep after each time I used it. I wound up using the last of it in a country patchwork quilt with chunky white chenille. I think I bought it at a JoAnn’s Fabric believe it or not. If yo do come across it I would love to find out where I can find more.
