I cleaned out the quilt room closet this past week, and found these squares all cut, ready for ?........I don't remember. So I sewed them together, and am looking for inspiration on what to add next. I have lots of thirties fat quarters. The squares are 1.5 inches. I may just cut some more and make it a little bigger. I sewed without looking at any color - just picked up the next one and added it to the strip. It's an exercise in non-control for someone who likes to over-manage.
When I want inspiration, I usually look at antique quilts online or in some of my books. My "go-to" books for inspiration are the following:
Great Little Quilts, by Eleanor Levie
Childhood Treasures: Doll Quilts by and for Children, by Merikay Waldvogel
Small Endearments: 19th Century Quilts for Children and Dolls, by Sandi Fox
Crib Quilts and Other Small Wonders, by Thos. K. Woodward and Blanche Greenstein
Little Quilts All Through the House by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt and Sylvia Johnson
Patriotic Little Quilts by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt and Sylvia Johnson
Celebrate with Little Quilts by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen VonHolt and Sylvia Johnson
American Doll Quilts by Kathleen Tracy
Big Book of Small Quilts by Mary Hickey
I'm heading to bed with two of these books, hoping to get inspired.
