Play Around the World Quilt

I sorta have a crush on everything that Sarah Jane does. Everything. And, when she had her first line of fabric, I wanted every SKU of it. It is filled with true multicultural children, not just children with different complexions.  And these kids all live in a magical world of individuality and whimsy. Love it. […]

Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing your method!

pennydog - July 4, 2014 - 5:28 am

This is so cool!

Lauren - July 3, 2014 - 9:13 pm

I love everything Sarah Jane does, too. This is a great use of that panel print. So original and the quilting is so impressive! What a lucky niece!

Alli - July 2, 2014 - 1:55 pm

Wow! That is such a cool quilt! I love it! :)

Christine Sherman - July 2, 2014 - 10:02 am

What a wonderful unique design, love it!

Rachel - July 1, 2014 - 3:08 pm

Wow, this is so beautiful! I’ve always loved that line and still have treasured pieces of it. Those curves are amazing, I love how you’ve repeated them throughout the quilt. And now I’m off to google 6 minute circle!!

Nicole - July 1, 2014 - 1:02 pm

That is just brilliant. So well designed. Well done.

Ben - July 1, 2014 - 11:09 am

Love the way you’ve used the panel.

kelly - July 1, 2014 - 9:17 am

Gorgeous Latifah! Love how you’ve customized that 6-minute circle technique – so clever!!!

Irelle B - July 1, 2014 - 8:48 am

Very creative and wonderful use of that border print. I love that fabric!

Mary D - July 1, 2014 - 8:19 am

What a really nice quilt for your niece. I know she will love this.

Melissa - July 1, 2014 - 7:49 am

What a genius way to use that fabric! Beautiful quilt!

Becky M - July 1, 2014 - 6:49 am

This is spectacular! Such a creative use of the technique and the print! Genius! :)

Andres - July 1, 2014 - 5:44 am

Another awesome quilt!

Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge - July 1, 2014 - 4:56 am

What an amazing quilt. I would never have thought of using that great print in that way. And Six Minute Circles? I’ll be googling that as soon as I finish my comment! :)

Cat - July 1, 2014 - 4:36 am

It’s truly gorgeous, I love it! I love how the child at the front of the parade-line looks to be stepping onto the curve, it’s just so perfect and fun. Your highlight colours are just perfect too – sweet and girly without being over-the-top girly. I love that balloon girl and rabbit print on the back too, I have that in my stash! Your label on the back is such a great idea. I’m going to google the six minute circle too. Thanks so much for sharing. Cat.

Laurelle C - July 1, 2014 - 3:48 am

Wow. Gorgeous quilt. Those curves look amazing. I am off to google six minute circle as I have not heard of that before. Thanks for sharing :)

Polka Dot Fox Quilt

A very dear friend is having a baby boy soon. She loves red polka dots. And browns. And polka dots in general. And twice I heard her say she loved the Fox and the Houndstooth fabric. And, I needed to make a full quilt sample for my May Block of the Month, Muffin Tops, that […]

Oh, please share the pattern! This is lovely!

Milagros - May 8, 2014 - 7:44 pm

Lovely!!!!!

EuphoriaJessica - May 6, 2014 - 1:37 pm

TOTALLY in love with this!

Kelsey - May 5, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Is there a pattern available for this somewhere for folks who aren’t able to attend the class?

julie - May 5, 2014 - 8:19 am

completely LOVE this!

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 […]

WOW!. That orange quilt is beautiful! Creative Beautiful and still Fun I see. \/

[…] 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

(Note: If you want to make your own Think & Wonder Quilt you can find the pattern here!) 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, […]

[…] these two quilts that I made up for my Think & Wonder pattern. You may remember the first Think & Wonder quilt which featured Dr. Seuss characters. Well, I made two different versions for my pattern artwork. […]

Quiltdivajulie - April 1, 2014 - 7:56 pm

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, […]

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!
