Setting the Record


This is the largest quilt I've ever made.  It's a generous twin size at 74"x90".  (See that toque poking out above the quilt?  HaHa, makes me smile:)  This was for a custom order.  I used an entire fat quarter bundle of Hope Valley.


I used up every last piece on the back, together with Essex Linen blend in natural.    Love the back of this quilt SO much.

  2. I love it too--the back just as much as the front. In fact, I'd be tempted to use the back as the front (uh, does that make any sense? You know what I mean...)

  3. Gorgeous! I love your fabric choices, and you can't go wrong with a simple pattern like that--love squares! And if you need to refill your fabric stash, my blog is hosting a giveaway this weekend at www.lindsaysews.com!

  12. Oooh, I love it!

    I made a hope valley quilt for my bed using strips, and I think that I much prefer yours with squares. The back is beautiful, too. :)

  20. I love Hope Valley! I just finished a Hope Valley quil that's similar, but just of the Fiesta colorway. I have all my squares cut out for another patchwork in Piney Woods. You've done a great job - it looks lovely :)

  21. I know this comment is, like, three years late, but this is one amazing quilt. I wish I had thought to use my entire Hope Valley in a single quilt as you did. What a fabulous way to capture an entire line!
