Summer quilt inspiration
We’ve seen some fun summer-themed quilt ideas in our Instagram feed lately and thought it would be fun to do a little round up of favourite patterns and inspiration!
This seriously delicious ice cream quilt is by Lindsey Neill of Pen + Paper Patterns for issue 50 of Love Patchwork & Quilting. It’s made with all Kona Cotton Solids which could totally be customised (although we LOVE Lindsey’s colour palette here). This quilt just makes me smile!
I’ve never forgotten this beach house mini quilt from Purl Soho that was created based on a picture! The project is really just inspiration and a tutorial for creating a quilt based on a picture of your own – there isn’t a pattern for this quilt. So it’s not for everyone and is definitely for the more adventurous and patient quilters, but, just, wow! I love this so much!
Another Instagram find was the Sliced Quilt by Slice of Pi Quilts, which is just one big, bold, mouth-watering wedge of watermelon in quilt form! So summery and bold. Make a mini to hang on the wall or a throw to picnic on!
Tula Pink’s free Anchors Away pattern is awesome if you’re into the nautical theme. There are a lot of cool versions out there but one of my faves is this grey and aqua quilt by Jade of Stitch Mischief. Check out the rest of her gorgeous seaside photos of this quilt on her blog!
