I finished the Hope Valley quilt I was working on, and it’s been successfully gifted to its recipient for Christmas! I managed to use a bit of each of my fat quarters from the entire line, plus a bunch of stash solids and other patterns in similar colorways. I ended up using ivory sashing and a grey back with a teal binding.
Here’s the new quilt just chillin’ beneath my (Inside A Black Apple) porcupine prints, which I adore:
Here’s the front:
I think the back is my favorite of all! I’m loving the light gray, and blues combo:
Hope all of you that celebrate Christmas had a great one! We just returned from a trip to Maine that was lovely as always and featured excellent company, awesome food (including as many, many sweets), an entertaining 3-year-old with a train obsession, fun present-giving and -receiving, and an all-around rejuvenating, relaxing time.
Tonight we got home and went to see Sherlock Holmes, which was witty and cute and felt all blockbustery with its filming and costumes and sets. I now desire a stagecoach, two horses, and my very own cobblestone street to ride on. Guess I have something to wish for for next Christmas!Posted by robyn on December 28th, 2009 under crafts, sewing
