Q is for Quilt
I've been casting around a bit for some inspiration. Do yourself a favor: Do not google 'amazing quilts' unless you've got some extra time to be awestruck. Set aside an hour or two first.
The Man and I (because he's wanted to make a quilt with me for years - I swear he's not a made up guy) have been thinking we want to do a tumbler design. I'm not sure though. Do you think that small embroidered scenes would be odd on the tumbler shape? I'm inclined to just stick to regular (classic!) squares. Maybe tumblers for the next one and then tumbling blocks for the next and then...
I love the geometrics. And I can see how quilting can become very addictive.
As for the hand sewn embellishments, I've been staring at inspirations for years. Smootch favors books that are illustrated with fabric (as in, in fabric originally, then photographed for the book). Her current library find is Mrs. Moon Lullabies for Bedtime. We spend hours looking through these books. Sometimes we even read them :D
I can't wait to get going. All this packing and organizing is bumming me out. Anybody know of any inspiring (all take funny too!) quilting blogs?
