25+ Modern Quilting Ideas

For some reason, I have this strange itch to quilt.  I guess it’s because of this baby boy who’s coming……but I can’t shake it.  Usually, I’m not big into quilting because, well, it takes so dang long.  I wanna start a project and then bing-bang-boom……be done!  However, baby quilts are a lot less work and the satisfaction comes more quickly.  And then, you know the whole baby thing and that crazy nesting thing and anticipation of meeting him thing.  So, I guess, that’s where the itch is coming from.


So, I’ve been browsing the internet for ideas……and my word, I have found so much to get excited about.


And yes, I love a good classic quilt block but I love all of these modern twists on quilting that I’m seeing lately.  Sometimes it’s not even the construction that makes the quilt a bit modern, it’s the fabric choice.  I’m loving it ALL!


Are you into quilting?  Or maybe you’ve been wanting to try?  I dare you to take a look at these and not get all excited in your belly about gathering some quilting supplies…….
