Living Room Quilts

Okay, I'm really behind. I've just been scoping out other peoples stuff, being inspired, and not sharing anything I actually got done. This one was completed a few weeks ago, inspired by this quilt - I saw it and just had to make one. And since dh decided that the last quilt I made for the living room was too small, it worked out to make it in matching colors. I do think this is my first all solid quilt. I like it.

Made with all solid Kona cottons, quilted with black thread in horizontal lines, backed with a black walmart sheet, and bound with more Kona brown. At least it's his size.

Here's the one that was "too small". I like it anyway. This one was finished a while ago...I think around Thanksgiving. It was inspired by this quilt:

I'm not 100% sure on any of the fabric, just some solids I bought that matched the flower print. I did get the print from Joann's. The binding is the black version of the same print. I like it...even if it is small.
