I love Lotta Jansdotter’s first line of fabric, Echo and knew I wanted to do something modern and outside the box for me.
I get inspiration for quilt designs from viewing the architecture and art sections of Pinterest and when I saw this image, it spoke quilt to me.
I think this could be windows in a building reflecting the images around it but it is the graphic chevrons that appealed to me. I pulled my fat quarters of Echo and cut them into various widths. I ordered additional yardage of the Ironwood Aneta from Superbuzzy to use at the top of the chevrons and found a solid in my stash that was perfect color of taupe. I used narrow strips of white sashing to set off the prints in the row and added random rectangles for additional interest. My wonderful long arm quilter Heidi Duryea from Rocky Mountain Quilting did the quilting. I asked her to keep it simple and modern and she did a fabulous job as usual.
I am still working on my photography and finding the best ways to photograph my quilts for my blog. Here are some additional outtakes from my photo shoot. Photography is a learned skill and I am definitely still learning.
Where do you get inspiration for your quilt designs?
Thanks for checking in. Update: This quilt won FIRST PLACE in our local quilt show! I’m linking to Val’s Quilting for Awards Quilts in the archives.
