It’s Monday, and that means two new 100 Quilts for Kids Blog Hop posts. Thanks to my friends Leigh of Leedle Deedle Quilts and Heather and Megan of Quiltstory for today’s posts. Leigh and I keep up via Instagram, and I’m always impressed with all that she is able to accomplish (she has a great jewelry etsy site) as the mother of 5 boys.  Quiltstory hosts a great series (stories about quilts, no less!) and a fun Tuesday linky party, and this is the 3rd year they have been part of 100 Quilts. Thanks, ladies!

I hope you check out both posts!

Habitat Quilt Swimbikequilt 100 Quilts For Kids Blog Hop: Leedle Deedle Quilts & Quiltstory

I started this quilt last year, and hoped to finish it in time to donate it in 2011. That didn’t happen, and this spring, I finally finished it up and donated it to the local chapter of Project Linus. I sound like a broken record, I know, but I think charity quilts should be beautiful. I also think it is a great time to try something new. For this simple patchwork quilt, I paired  Jay McCarroll’s Habitat with my favorite Loulouthi print (on sale here!) by Anna Maria Horner. I added in some solids. I was going for an edgier quilt, using  a darker color palette than I normally work with. I don’t think it worked, but experimentation is good, right? At least the binding is pretty (a print from Lush by Patty Young).

    I can’t believe you don’t love the colours!!!! I can totally see this on a teenagers bed. Something that is snuggly and warm and makes a place home, but is also edgy and rebellious. Yes I used the word rebellious to describe a quilt, and I’m sticking to it!
    I love it!
