Etsy Love: Clothescape

The chilly weather turns my thoughts to cozy blankets.  I like to keep them in every seating area of the house, from each couch to my offic chair to plenty in the bedroom, so I can curl up and be cozy no matter where I'm lounging.

I've always been a fan of quilts, I love their texture and weight and the love that goes into making them.  My talented seamstress sis made me a small quilt a few years ago, customized to my living room colours at the time - I still love it!  Recently, while browsing Etsy, I came across cool quilter Clothescape and their fresh and modern designs instantly caught my eye.  These are not your grandmother's quilts!

   
I would love to drape one of these fabulous creations over my bed, adding a touch of homemade with a touch of modern and unique!

She also quilts her designs onto other items, like bags and pillows. And she used organic cotton and other sustainable materials whenever possible.

What a great way to incorporate quilting into your style in non-traditional ways!

What are your thoughts on quilts?  Do you love them or find them too old-fashioned for your style?

  6. These quilts are BEAUTIFUL!

    My Mom is a quilter (or a fibre artist as I have been told over and over) so I have a great appreciation for quilts and the TLC that goes into them. I love quilts! When I turned 16, I didn't get a car for my birthday...I got a quilt! I still us it almost everyday. :)
