The White Stripes Quilt

This quilt is definitely in the “quilts I haven’t blogged about” category. At my last job my co-worker Jean and his wife had a baby boy. Not knowing the mom and wanting to create a quilt that was simple and classic I decided on stripes. Not finding the stripes that I wanted, I decided to […]

[…] Latifah’s White Stripes Quilt […]

folksmith - February 20, 2014 - 8:51 am

Latifah, beautiful baby quilt. can you tell me where you get your labels? i would love to put those on my quilts. thanks!

Jemellia - November 25, 2013 - 3:27 am

I love the quilt, quilting and the ball! I’m playing catch-up on your blog right now, I should get some work done while no one is awake!

Tina in Boston - November 19, 2013 - 4:04 pm

The stripes are so precise and the white is refreshing! It’s also got a preppy feel that I love. I really like your label, too!

Sunnyincal - November 17, 2013 - 1:31 pm

Love it!!!

Kitty - November 17, 2013 - 8:53 am

Beautiful!! That ball is so cute!

Lynda M Otvos - November 16, 2013 - 7:46 pm

Love it, and the stripes are super. You have a great pattern here. Not that i follow patterns but you get what I mean, lots of people do. This truly is a very neat quilt and the diagonal quilting makes it perfect. Jolly well done.

Mary - November 16, 2013 - 6:07 pm

I love the idea of making your own stripes. Lucky baby. Really fun ball.

Stephanie hicks - November 16, 2013 - 2:10 pm

Love this quilt….so clean and fun! Where do you get you labels from?

Sharon - November 16, 2013 - 12:54 pm

Very nice quilt for baby and beyond! I like the stripey sections

Lady Harvatine - November 16, 2013 - 10:33 am

I love it Latifah! The colors are just great.

Think and Wonder Quilt

Some very dear friends of mine are having a baby boy soon and their nursery has a Dr. Seuss theme so of course they are getting a Dr. Seuss quilt! I love bright and colorful quilts but, sometimes Dr. Seuss quilts and projects are made with an overabundance of color and prints. Can you believe […]

I, too, love Dr. Seuss – but have resisted the fabric line because it is TOO much (and for me that is a lot to say since I adore colors).

Your approach is BRILLIANT!

Lynn @ K&S Design Girls - September 21, 2013 - 12:47 pm

Oh I love this! Amazing.

Pat S - August 13, 2013 - 10:04 am

Love this! Puts my Dr. Seuss log cabin to shame – but I think yours is brilliant.

Melissa D - July 26, 2013 - 6:45 pm

I love this quilt! I love the bits of color in the midst of the neutrals, and I love the back and your labe;, too!

mathea - July 25, 2013 - 12:46 pm

I love this quilt – it’s so elegant and stylish and then you get the surprising bursts of colour when you have a closer look – plenty for baby to explore and a quilt to treasure for a long time after the baby stage. Love the ball!

Alli - July 10, 2013 - 5:53 pm

I super duper dig your quilt’s color scheme! Most Dr. Seuss quilts I see are really bright and primary-color-y, which isn’t really my thing, but yours is awesome! :)

Jeifner - July 10, 2013 - 2:19 am

I really like all the tans/neutrals mixed with the black and white stripes. The pops of character color will be so fun for the baby as it grows up :)

Alison Marie - July 9, 2013 - 8:46 am

I love this – now I really have no desire to finish my all red&blue Dr. Suess quilt for my cousin’s son….I want to start all over again in another direction!

Latifah - July 9, 2013 - 7:29 am

Thanks for all the love everyone! Thanks for letting me know Betty, I’ll look into it – maybe my photos are too big. . .

Betty - July 9, 2013 - 7:26 am

You have such a gift for seeing the possibilities in combinations and making it all work. This is one of the coolest quilts I’ve ever seen and am totally smitten with it!
I’ve followed your blog for a while now and truly love your work (note, I don’t love what engine runs your blog because it just doesn’t load well, herky jerky and slower than molasses). Think I’m doing something wrong?

Carla - July 9, 2013 - 6:03 am

How darling! and a ball to top it off. Very nice

sue - July 8, 2013 - 5:43 pm

fabulous and inspiring!

Jane Holbrook - July 8, 2013 - 12:00 pm

Very pleasing to the spirit. Modern and traditional and sassy and so sweet. I can almost reach in and touch the fabric. You have just made my day. I am in touch with my inner purr.

Mary Ann - July 8, 2013 - 11:53 am

Just fabulous, so sophisticated and playful at the same time.

Tracy - July 8, 2013 - 11:45 am

What a beautiful quilt! A really restful sophisticated quilt that would look lovely anywhere, and then close up its so playful, what a lucky baby!

Christine Sherman - July 8, 2013 - 8:50 am

What an amazing quilt!!

angela - July 8, 2013 - 7:30 am

I love this! Your work is so interesting and pleasing to the eye. Wow.

Ann - July 8, 2013 - 6:19 am

I have not been a fan of the Dr Zuess fabrics nor the quilts. Too, too much for me. But this, this I absolutely love. I have never been accused of being subtle but maybe subtle is the new me ? Thanks for sharing this quilt is inspirational.

PennyDog - July 8, 2013 - 3:38 am

Brilliant! I love the subtlety.

Lady Harvatine - July 7, 2013 - 9:38 pm

Well done latifah! This is the perfect way to make a dr Seuss quilt. I’m not a fan of crazy colorful ones. I love color too but they can just be too much.

Elisabeth - July 7, 2013 - 9:35 pm

Oh Latifah, this is so amazing. You are so talented. <3

Jayne - July 7, 2013 - 7:47 pm

You were very brave taking Dr. Seuss in a less bold way! But…this so works! Brilliant and some little baby is going to cherish this forever! Well done!!

Shhh. . . Baby Quilt and Ball

OK. This will be one of the many quilts that I’ll be posting about that I’ve made in the last year or so. This one was a quickie. Well, sorta. Last year the LA Modern Quilt Guild was lucky enough to host Elizabeth Hartman of the blog Oh, Fransson! I don’t take many classes but, […]

These colors are stunning together……just found your website and am loving it!

leslie tucker jenison - July 2, 2013 - 9:32 pm

I’m so glad I saw this little baby quilt! It gives me a much-needed idea for a new little one in our family. Thanks for sharing: the quilt is lovely and so is the ball!!

Ashton - May 13, 2013 - 2:29 pm

What a beautiful and simple quilt! That ball is awesome! I might make one to match the quilt I’m making for my friend and her baby!

Kayla Weathers - May 10, 2013 - 2:05 pm

I LOVE THIS!!! I’m going to try doing this. Your work is wonderful. I would love to take a class from you!

Arita - May 7, 2013 - 8:21 pm

I love the ball too……do you have a tutorial?

Dawnmarie - May 6, 2013 - 7:09 am

What a cute set! Is there a pattern I can find or buy somewhere for the ball? I’m dying to try that!

kendascrafts - May 6, 2013 - 7:02 am

I LOVE the ball! Is there a pattern you use? What great colors!

Kite Tails Quilt

Many of you saw glimpses of this quilt in the tutorial on the Modern Quilt Guild blog but, it wasn’t quilted yet and I literally just showed a peek of it in the tutorial. It’s a very simple quilt using HRT’s that makes for a quick baby quilt. I love the color combination of the […]

That is so sweet.

Michelle - January 25, 2013 - 1:08 pm

That’s so pretty! I think I’m going to have to try making half square rectangles.

Clair - January 25, 2013 - 3:05 am

Such a beautiful combination of colours and amazing precision. Love it Latifah!

carol sulcoski - November 18, 2012 - 7:23 am

Wonderful quilt — love the shapes, the colors, and the WOW factor!

KatieLynne Peterson-Victor - November 17, 2012 - 11:36 am

Through Kathy Mack’s superior radar report, I arrived here. I’m so taken with this quilt—both the design and colorway is so very pleasing. It gives me the same pleasant feeling that I get when viewing Japanese designs—soothing, comforting, peacefulness. The execution of your dream is astounding!

Sherri ~ daintytime - May 16, 2012 - 6:17 pm

Sweet & clean. I like this!

liberty - May 15, 2012 - 9:56 am

the pics look great Latifah! (and the pics of your yellow tote are awesome too!!!)

I love that crosshatch fabric too. yum.

Jolinda - May 3, 2012 - 4:09 pm

Love your work Latifah! Where do you get your labels/tags at?

Jenn - April 27, 2012 - 12:40 pm

I have the worst time getting pictures for my blog in general. Spring has definitly helped though. My main problem is not having time to shoot in daylight (I work full time) and my apt set up not allowing a sewing table near the window. Lovely quilt by the way!

Melissa - April 26, 2012 - 1:01 pm

That quilt is gorgeous! And I’ve got photo problems, too – maybe I need a nicer camera and a photography class! :)

Donna SeaHorseQuilts - April 26, 2012 - 4:35 am

Cute quilt. I have trouble with the photos, too. I want to photograph the whole project, but then you can’t see the details or, most common, lighting is wrong, wrong, wrong. And photo editing often does strange things to fabric colors. But all your photos have always looked beautiful to me. I’m surprised to hear your question. I just assume I’m the only one who has this trouble! :-) . And I’m also happy to see you blogging here again. You’re quilts are always inspirational.

Ali - April 25, 2012 - 10:43 pm

That’s just lovely! Pinned and am going to have to make one of those for myself.

Lisa Redmond - April 25, 2012 - 5:34 pm

I love this quick and easy pattern for HRTs when you posted it earlier on Modern Quilt Guild blog. I’ve already used it to make a quilt for my cancer charity workshop using donated fabrics from Lauren. Thanks for sharing. AND I’m so glad you’re blogging on a regular basis now!

Debbie-Esch House Quilts - April 25, 2012 - 1:27 pm

I definitely have that problem with photographs – seems like I often have too much or not enough light. Kite Tails is darling!

Merge Quilt and just what is a HRT?

This week we’re going to look at a fun little tutorial that I wrote up on the Modern Quilt Guild blog for making HRT’s. What is an HRT? Well, if a Half Square Triangle is an HST shouldn’t a Half Rectangle Triangle be a HRT? Plus, Half Rectangle Triangles is just too many syllables so […]

I’m so glad I found you! I love all of your quilts and your aesthetic! I like that you approach quilting with an engineering mind. My husband is an engineer, and I don’t have any of that in me! :)

There was one particular quilt that sent me here and it is behind you. It’s orange and white with two blue stripes. They are spherical. I just can’t find it on your blog.

I’m excited to try this tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing. I wish you the best of luck in the future.

liberty Worth - April 12, 2012 - 2:00 pm

After seeing this quilt, (in it’s many stages) you’ve got me so itching to try that tutorial. love this quilt.

Kelly - April 12, 2012 - 5:54 am
