Inspiration: During Quiet Time's Neighborhood Doll Quilt

during_quiet_time.JPGNeed inspiration to get quilting this fall? Check out how sweet a simple design like During Quiet Time's house-themed doll quilt can get your quilty brain activated!

I'm a seasonally-minded crafter, and as fall approaches, I start thinking about quilts! Patchwork is one of my favorite crafts at any time of year, but the thought of snuggling under a handmade quilt as the days get shorter and night grow chillier - that's a powerful, powerful motivator to get craftin'.

This teeny tiny quilt by During Quiet Time shows just how effective a simple design can be - I love how a relatively quiet, geometric block can just let your fabrics sing.

Looking for even more inspiration? Quilt guru (guru-ette?) Denyse Schmidt has a brand-new book out, Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration, that has lots of ideas for making traditional quilts look tasty and modern. Even better, most of the patterns in this book would be a doddle for anyone who had basic sewing experience.
