Quilt Monday?

Because who said Quilt Monday has to be on Mondays?

Needing a little inspiration? Here's what's got me excited today:



Ian Hundley has a quilt show at a local shop, and clearly he's onto something: these quilts are different from anything I've seen before, and they're really lovely in person. Based on topographical maps of Europe and using mostly fabric from apparel, his quilts also incorporate bits of lace, buttons and buttonholes, and pintucks from garments. I especially liked the satin stitch he uses between sections in one quilt. Another quilt uses raw edges of a chiffon or a similar fabric to bring together the various blocks of the quilt.

Showing at An Earnest Cut and Sew in the West Village.

  3. oh, its gotten me excited too! I've recently been working on a rather large quilt that I put down for a couple of months, don't know what but it feels like a good time to do it. And that quilt feels like Spring to me, I just love it!

  7. you should see the Cork Knitting Map! Just google it and you'll find it. It's knitting traffic and weather patterns in Cork, Ireland for one year (last year).
