Pottery Barn inspired quilt

While looking through a Pottery Barn Kids magazine (I know, I don't even HAVE kids, but it doesn't mean I can't look at cute tiny things!) I fell in love with this quilt! I was taking a home decor sewing class at the time and knew I had to attempt a knock off for my final project!

There is so much I love about this darling quilt, the bright colors, the scalloped edges, the tiny ric rac, the trees, and of course- the owls! The owls aren't a part of this quilt, but I desperately wanted them to be a part of mine!


Here is what I came up with...


My jewel of a mom happens to have a business doing Long Arm Quilting! (How lucky am I?) So I made the top and she quilted it for me! She really went to town on this; adding so much detail and character!

{grass & flowers}

{clouds}

{sun & wind}

{a sweet butterfly and field mouse hiding between the trees}
{dragonflies}
{a closer look at the owl}
{ric rac and scallops}

{more scallops and the back}
I have to say, I am thrilled with how it turned out! Pottery Barn, eat your heart out!
{p.s. if you are in need of someone to do the quilting on your projects my mom's business is called Quilted with Kerr (her name is Kerry-- how clever is she? ;) ) and she can be reached at (480) 861-1431. She is located in AZ but will accept projects from any state!}

So cute! I'm so jealous of your sewing skills Tar. I wish I could sew! It really is a fear of mine. I've spent too long with a seam ripper and don't want to see one at work again in a long time =)!! I'll stick with mod podge =)!

I worked at PBK for A while and almost used my 40% discount to buy that quilt because I loved it so much. Now I know I can make a much cuter one :)
