Just a Bed Quilt

My lavender bed quilt is done.

There's not really much to say about it; it's just a bed quilt. Just a humble bed quilt made from my lavender, seafoam green, aqua, and purple stash pile.


The soft kind of bed quilt that I like so much.

Scrappy and full of memories...

with blocks that Angela and I worked on together...

and my friend Cindy (Angela's mom) sent over some pretty scraps for...


with lots of quilting in soft green cotton thread.

Yep, just a humble bed quilt.
My favorite kind of quilt.
We slept under it last night and we both slept well. I think that's a good sign.
Here's the pattern if you want to make one yourself:

Very simple. Just assemble like you would a nine patch.

I love the colors and this looks SO soft. What kind of batting did you use in it???

It shouldn't be humble. It should be very proud!!!

NOT JUST A QUILT...A gorgeous guilt. I just love it and so spring, it must've been just wonderful sleeping under it. Yes what kind of batting did you use?

Well, dagnabbit, you've gone and made another stunner that I'm coveting. And you went and gave us the pattern, too! So, of course I have to add this one to my bucket list. I now must live to the age of 134 to complete them all.

It's simply gorgeous.

Dianne said...

Love the colours, very soft and romantic. Inspires me to make a new quilt for our bed which could lead to a whole bedroom makeover actually. You did a beautiful job on the quilting too and I think your double wedding ring cushions are cute too.

Hi, just dropped by to say hello, when I saw 'Just a Bed Quilt' was something that I have done for a friend. Mine was a darker version of lilac and purple. Yours look great!

Vicky said...

That's really pretty, and your embroidered pillowcases match it perfectly. Great job!

Rhonda said...

ladydi said...

It's beautiful of course, but. . . what happened to the yellow one? Is there a place for retired quilts?

Laurie said...

It's a beautiful quilt. Isn't it nice to use up your stash...

That is such a lovely quilt! The colours and blocks look so right for each other.

Thank you for the pattern but now I have a bad case of startitis and not enough lavender in my stash...

I absolutely love this quilt! Your colors are fabulous. I think the simple patterns are always nice because they really bring out the beauty of the fabrics.
Cheers,
Dionne
PS - Your photos are so lovely as well.

Angela said...

Wow it looks great! It was tons of fun helping you put together blocks. Plus it does go with the wall color :)

Sharon said...

Thanks for sharing the "pattern". I love the colors in this quilt! What a beauty! So soft & cozy looking - just right for a Spring nap!

Cheryl said...

Beautiful colors, thanks for sharing!

Kellie said...

So very lovely! The colors are perfect---my mom loves purple, she'd go gaga over something like this! Thanks for sharing the pattern, I may just have to give it a try!

Teresa said...

That's a very pretty quilt Lisa - and definately not humble ( in my opinion!)
I am feeling the need for some simple piecing - I might just give it a go
Thanks

SJ said...

Lisa,
Thank you so much for providing the pattern and the idea for a quilt for my almost 3 year old granddaughter who is soon to be a big sister. I've had a Baby Faces embroidery designs CD and fabrics that I just never used. Now I've embroidered the faces on several 4 1/2" squares for the centers of blocks that I plan to just scatter on the top. And I can use all that stash fabric to make the blocks. (That's taking some time as I seem to think faster than I can sew)

Amanda said...

It's beautiful. I love scrappy quilts.

Thanks for the pattern!

Janet said...

so beautiful!!! Need I say more?

*karendianne. said...

Lovely. Indeed!!!

Heather said...

i love this quilt ... is it hard to quilt ? you can teach me in your free time :)

SJ said...

The quilt is done and my granddaughter loves it. I'd never have made it if I hadn't seen yours. That was a lot of tiny seams to press open. Since I kept changing where I was going to place the blocks, pressing open was my only option. (She helped me decide) Thank you.
