quilt-y inspiration

Where do you go for a little hit of quilting inspiration? I always check out the Anthropologie website to take a peek at the bedding. There are always great pattern and fabric combinations. These quilts are an Anthro/APC collaboration and are simply gorgeous (although a bit expensive):

iPod case

I whipped up an iPod case for a nephew’s birthday. It was the first time I cut into my Ruby Star Rising fabric. Definitely needed to take a deep breath before that first snip.

I quilted it with a layer of batting and then embroidered his name on the lining.

I actually broke two needles sewing this up. What’s worse than the sound of that crunch and then the sight of an annihilated needle?
