Welcome to Pin it Monday!


13 Spools

I've been having fun adding some of your pins to my boards. My picks from last week's linkup are both from Joanne Jones: (click image titles to go to original source for pinning)


I'm normally not a fan of wonky, but this quilt really spoke to me. There's something so playful and eye-catching about the color play and value placement. I love it!

String quilt but extraordinary


Again, the colors here are so intriguing to me - colors I would never consider putting together, but love now that I see them!

Today's guest host is my awesome friend Lindsay from Lindsay Sews and Craft Buds. She's compiled some of her favorite pins from last week's linkup. Continue reading to hear her thoughts on them, as well as to participate in the linky party! (click image titles to go to original source for pinning)

I love new-to-me quilting techniques, and these free-motion loops look doable and fresh. I don't recognize many of the fabrics, but they work together so well in this simple patchwork quilt. Lovely!

What a fun kid's quilt pattern! I love how the quilter said, "It's one of the first patterns I pinned on Pinterest and I finally had to break down and make it." This photograph with the building blocks on top is adorable and so smart.

I'm a big fan of the new Arizona fabric line for April Rhodes for Art Gallery. This quilt borrows inspiration from the backing fabric for a really unique take on a triangle quilt, and looks super snuggly.

Who doesn't love quilts (and quilt blocks) with feet? This pin makes me smile. If you can get the whole family involved in a quilt block photo shoot, why not?! The center, classic Swoon block is my fave.

Where do you look for color inspiration? I like this collage because it goes beyond wild orchid and ties in complementary pinks, peaches and plums. If I could eat this collage, I would.

Now it's your turn! Show us your best pins.

Rules:
- You'll need a Pinterest account to participate.

- Please follow me on Pinterest and follow Lindsay on Pinterest. You'll be able to see all of our quilty pins and repins this way.

- Link up to 4 pins of your quilty work: finishes, wips, detail shots, supplies - anything quilt-related goes :)

- Pins can be from any date, not just this past week, as long as they have not been previously linked up.

- Be sure to link to the url of a Pinterest pin, not a blog post!!!

- I ask that you repin at least 4 other pins - linky parties are best when we all mingle!

- By linking, you give me permission to feature your linked images on my blog and social media. For this reason, I ask that you only share pins of your own photos.

- If you want to pin my linkup button, or share on your blog/social media about this new linky party, I'll be forever grateful :)
