Two little girls, a new bedroom, and not much time make for simplified quilting inspirations. Luckily, on my Pintrest board, I have some pretty, quick and modern quilts to use as inspiration. I have also really been wanting to try my hand at the quilt frame/820 set up, and have a little girl who is about to turn 4 and would appreciate a quilt for her birthday.
I was able to scavenge up some fabric from my stash, and with a little of the new Lotta Jansdotter fabric I picked up at Sew Expo, get started on something inspired by this little stack of fabric.
I wasn’t too hung up on making something just like my inspiration. I would have been using way more solids if that were the case. I pulled prints I love that I had mostly purchased at Bolt. The top is pieced, which was pretty quick since there was minimal cutting and just a handful of seams.
Later this week, I will quilt it on the frame in long loopy rows of cursive “e’s”. I think with the help of the quilt frame (I don’t even have to baste. Seriously!) I may just finish this in time for the March 30th birthday.

It’s got such an attractive simplicity to it.
That is lovely, both my 4 and 3 year old say so too! I just took the quilt frame class Saturday and it was amazing! Now I am looking for reasons to sew up tons of quick and fast small quilts so I can get to quilting them! I think I need to find some more pregnant friends…
Thanks Devon! Approval from the 3-4 year old set is very good to hear also. I thought this one would be a good “practice” quilt that I will hopefully like even more when I am done.
Our little soon-to-be four-year-old will love snuggling in this pretty quilt! Looks like it’s going together easily with these amazing quilting tools. What a great b-day gift! ~Mom
