Quilt gifts!

Some of my favorite gifts received in this new-baby season have been quilts.

The first is a family-sized quilt perfect for snuggling under and watching movies. It just so happened to match my basement TV room which is already black, white, gray, and red. I also love the fact that it incorporates scrap fabrics. In fact, I had been thinking I should create a quilt for that room myself. Check that one off the list!

The woman who made it for us is very casual in her approach. I once heard her say she works on a quilt until she runs out of fabric. The exact size is not so important to her and I don't necessarily think she follows patterns. I like that attitude! No pressure for perfection, just a very functional piece of art in the end.

The other one that I am going to share is inspired by Eric Carle (check out his blog!), one of my favorite children's book illustrators. There's a line of fabric created using his distinct illustrations. This play quilt was custom created for my little one by KTjDesigns. She does beautiful, colorful quilts and other lovely baby goodies.
