There’s a chill in the air this morning and I am dreaming about beautiful quilts!  There’s something about the time and care that goes into a quilt, not to mention the fabulous fabric, that really makes them a treasure.

I actually don’t have much quilting ability, but I did manage to make a super simple quilt last year and it has turned out to be a family favorite.  One day I’ll have to take some classes or talk someone into to teaching me how to make beautiful quilts like in the ones in this post.

I’m constantly in awe over quilter’s ability to mix fabric of all different colors and patterns and come up with stunning results.  Quilts are simply a work of art.  Oh, and the keep you cozy at the same time…awesome!

Everyone knows Heather Bailey is extremely talented.  This one would look great in my house.  Can someone make me one?  It’s all bright with sweet ruffles…love it!

You can find this modern quilt pattern at Olive and Ollie.  Heather is super talented and I love her style.  Check out her blog for more fabulous quilting inspiration.

For all your quilting needs check out these wonderful fabric shops…

Do you sew quilts or do you purchase them?  They are beautiful either way, aren’t they?

    I love quilts and own about a dozen. My grand mothers and great aunts all quilted. My mother-in-law makes some lovely quilts.
    I have even found time to make several small, baby and child-sized quilts.

    Your selection was outstanding. I could maybe sew a straight line if my life depended on it, but seeing these quilts makes me long for sewing talent, if only for a second.

    GORGEOUS!!
    I feel all warm and cozy just imagining myself wrapped up in one of those lovely quilts!!
    I have made a few, but honestly mine do not compare!!

    I sew and sometimes even finish making quilts :P I’d love to buy an elusive vintage quilt that other people always seem to find.
