{Inspired by} Quilted Details

My friend Colleen and I recently had the privilege of a personal tour of the American Quilts feature exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum. I’m not a quilter – with the exception of a stint in high school where my girlfriends and I made this huge community quilt and obsessively watched the movie How to Make an American Quilt.  However, seeing the gorgeous quilts at the exhibit made me wish that I could remember how!

Quilting and crochet can sometimes feel more granny than chic but with a good quilting machine and fall in full swing, I can’t get enough of the cozy vibe, intricate patterns and hand-sewn detailing.  So until I have the time to re-learn the art of quilting, I’m planning to just snap up a few items with this classic look.
