Long overdue and new quilts

It has been such a long time since I have been blogging but I never was aware of the fact that it was more then 5 months.
It has been a busy time and since blogging is so time consuming I did'nt have the time for it.
Now I want to show you 3 quilt tops that I have been making in the last 6 weeks.

I have for ever been a very big Kaffe Fasset, Philip Jacobs and Martha Negley fan. Their fabrics inspire me again and again.
Then there was the new book of Jane Brocket, a very big Kaffe fassett fan like me.
The fabrics and het book together, inspired me to make a quilt from a packet of fabrics that I had collected since a few years.

These are almost all Philip Jacobs fabrics for the exeption of 1 very old Kaffe Fassett print.I love what this simple pattern of squares put on the point do with the fabrics.I'm totally in love with this quilt. It's size is suitible for a single bed.

This second top is even more simple. It is a very cool palet of whites and blue prints. It needs one more stripe on the right and then it is big enough to be a lap quilt. Kaffe Fassett quilt can be very cool and understated. The third top is quit the opposite.

The top I made with a combination of Kaffe Fassett, Martha Negley and some Philip Jacobs fabrics and a few other ones. I was inspired in a class of a local teacher and knew immediatly how and what I wanted to do with the pattern I was given. I'm still in doubt if I will put a border on. The quilt top is now 180 cm wide and high.

So, I know what to do in the next months. If only I could quilt them in 6 weeks. That would be a real result! But I like to make my quilts all by hand and so the quilting will take 6 years if I know myself!!!

See you next time!
