quilt & patterns...


my first attempt at making a quilt...

The following patterns are concepts only, nothing has been printed on fabric (yet)...I would really appreciate your feedback on the designs and would love to hear your colour suggestions...thanks a lot.

Ok this is a totally random comment since I am just blog surfing and a complete stranger to you, but I am a quilter and I love, love, love the patterns on your material. Beautiful, funky, fresh, different. Keep up the good work, and I hope to see those for sale soon.

LLOOOVEEE the birds and the seeds.
The Footsteps are pretty cool too!

Now, I'm gonna have to order more fabric...
Great!
:D

I really love the birds, too! I'd also buy the seeds and the footprints :)

i love the 'stitches' pattern (and colours) and the 'birds' the most. The other are lovely too but those 2 really do it for me.

SQUID37 said...

LOVE, LOVE the birds!!! Both colors are perfect!!!!! I'm also a big fan of the seeds and footprints.

I hope you show us your quilt when it's done! It's going to be wonderful!

Fer said...

Love 'em all except for maybe the 3rd and 4th ones, they're still nice but (finances permitting) I'd buy the others in a flash!

The quilt looks gorgeous too, blue and brown in the right shades look so good together - can't wait to see more!!

the birds design..cute!

Wendy said...

I love the birds - fresh and simple!

Hyena In Petticoats said...

The birds! The birds!

How is it that we're not over birds yet?

The stitches and the seeds are great, too.

I love the blue and the red, and I'm having a serious love affair with mustard, teal, and yellow paired with black right now....

I also think your designs would look brilliant on white linen, too...

hmmm?

yep i like the birds too, not too keen on the footprints. love the seeds as well.
although with the birds, i've seen a very similar design and quite popular on a t-shirt brand. a lot of ppl around melbourne have been wearing them - sorry can't pinpoint the brand. i dunno if that matters or not?

I like the birds and the seeds. I can imagine them as the blinds for my kitchen. I like both colors, although I would probably choose the blue one if I had to.

They're all gorgeous but I particularly love the birds in red - I'd definitely buy that.

Melissa said...

birds in red is my fave! but they are all gorgeous. you've been busy! good girl :)

Louise said...

i absolutely love the birds and the seeds Gorgeous. I can't wait to see the quilt finished.

Kristine said...

love the birds and footsteps. the slate blue and orange looks fabulous on the natural linen. All delicious really.

daisyjanie said...

They're all terrific, but I like footsteps the most. Something about it...

Kaija said...

I too have been itching to try quilting!

I love the birds (surprise!) and I'm sure I'd love them even more in some darker (brown) color. The blue footsteps color is just perfect for the base color, but the design doesn't work for me. I can be super picky though :)

You've been so busy and yet so creative! I'm green with envy. I can't wait to see how your quilting experience turns out!

Hello! I have read your blog for quite awhile, but I think this is my first time posting. I love the leaves and the footsteps. I think the footsteps look great in blue. How about green and brown for the leaves? Birds are in these days, and so is yellow, so yellow birds might be good.

such lovely designs!

Awesome new patterns! Great work :-)My favourites are the birds and seeds patterns - just beautiful!!

Jesse said...

Your quilt looks like it's going to be lovely!

I have to agree with everyone else that I like the birds, particularly in blue, and I really really like the leaves... the rhythm of this one is great.

Sherrin said...

I love the birds best... but both colours are great, I couldn't decide on over the other.

Corrie said...

oh my gosh I love them especially the birds on the line....so cute and great colours....you've been busy

leslie said...

Juddie & Godfrey said...

I really love the birds and the leaves ..... so pretty!

i really like the birds and the seeds. so simple yet so divine. the birds are my most favoritest! it's nice to see a bird design that is more like a real bird and less like a cartoon character or cutsy thing.
