Inspirations from Ikea

Inspirations from Ikea

I bought this great moose upholstery fabric from Ikea.  Just fell in love with the colors and the moose!  (Hey, did you know that the plural of moose is moose?) Very cute. Then I went to a quilt store to supplement the fabrics to go with it.  I already had a number of great fabrics at home, but I also wanted to infuse it with some additional modern fabrics.
Here's the quilt top,  as you can see, I had a bit of fun with the different colors of vertical sashing!

Sometimes, I just need a break from art quilts to do some quick and easy piecing.  I put this together in less than a day, which is extremely satisfying.  And fun! And, I look forward to quilting it as well!
Here's a closeup of a few fabric favorites!
And, because this quilt was made from 6" blocks, with no two repeating....I still have lots of fabric to play with and make something else! Yeah!

I love these fabrics! I don't have a wonderful Ikea nearby but will have one within a two-hour drive in the spring. They have such fun stuff and I love the neat fabs there among many other things. Thanks for sharing.

This is adorable, Kathy, and I'm hankering to do a bit of piecing myself lately. Out of curiosity, do you wash all your fabric beforehand?

Thanks! Yes, I always wash fabrics first. I made the mistake of tossing all of these in the washer at the same time. One of the pinks bled onto a grey and white piece, which I could not fix. Glad it happened before it was in the quilt. Wash separately, and use Retayne!
