 Kaleidoscopequilt

I saw this quilt in a Crate & Barrel catalog last year. At the time it was out of my price range (and easily re-createable). I just went to check to see if it was still available and now it's half off and out of stock. Bummer.

I think this is going to turn into my winter quilt project when I'm on break from school (yay December 16th!).

It's fitting that it's a quilt made out of solid colors...my favorite quilts always seem to be with plain, solid fabric (you've caught onto my secret, Michelle!). I think I'll be purchasing the fabric from this site (thanks, Melissa, for the link).

Right now Jon is moaning in the background..."do we really need another quilt for our bed?" (I kid!)

  2. that will be a beautiful quilt! i am sure you will recreate it wonderfully.
    i'd highly recommend the fabric shack. i have always had really great service from them and you can't beat their prices for kona cotton solids! only $3.99/yard!

  4. LOL poor suffering Jon. It looks very similar to your plain spoken quilt (I think thats the name?) only with MUCH smaller stripes. I like it, I can't wait to see yours.

  5. What a great quilt. I'm going to make a solid quilt! You keep inspiring me.
    I've always had great luck with FabricShack - and they do have pretty good prices. What's really great about them is their selection - other people can be out of fabric, and a lot of times they still have some.

  7. Looks like a good project - I have trouble buying things like quilts or bags now, under the logic I could make them myself.
    I love Fabric Shack - I just ordered a stack of things from them. They have low cost Kona, but also many older and discontinued fabrics (often cheap), some Japanese prints, and you can order as little as an eighth of a yard.

  10. I've got a *mostly* solid quilt in mind as well! I have a stack of 1/2 cuts of Amy Butler solids... 11 of them to be exact. I need to find the perfect scraps of coordinating AB prints to scatter about, just for the fun of it! I LOVE this PB quilt above... but way better idea to make your own... can't wait to see how it looks!

  13. When I saw that I thought you made it! It looks absolutely like something you'd make. My husband's given up when it comes to quilts for our bed... he just nods and smiles now lol!

  15. Nice! I like the deep colors and it doesn't look too difficult to construct. Funny, but I was in C&B about a week ago looking at furniture but then I wandered over to the bedding section and was admiring this quilt: http://images.crateandbarrel.com/is/image/Crate/PaprikaQuiltAVF9?$sharelarge$
    I was thinking of making it with precut rolls like bali pops.

  20. Completely re-creatable. I can't wait to see how you interpret the quilt! I'm sure it will be perfect and finished right in time for that cold weather...
