Quilted Modern Art DIY!

While we all know quilting can be used for about a million different applications, it is becoming trendier all the time for fashion & home accents! My most favorite use of quilting in home décor is as wall art! There's just something so striking about seeing a quilt on a wall and with SO much inspiration from the modern quilting world, you can create fun, high impact art without too much time & effort! We found the tutorial for this awesome & simple piece on the A Beautiful Mess blog! Click the link for full instructions!


-fabric (try Bella Solids, Cotton Couture or Weave!)
-lightweight batting sheet
-sewing machine

-safety pins
-staple gun
-fabric scissors
-craft blade (optional)
-painter's tape (optional)
Isn't this wonderful as a statement over a bare fireplace? I could see a piece like this gracing a wall in a dining room or over a couch too! Mandi from Making Nice in the Midwest even suggests using it as a headboard...what a great idea!! Create a little more impact with your quilted art by using a darker neutral like charcoal or navy! So many ways to elaborate on this idea and create incredible art of your very own! Try this project today!
Happy Sewing!
