Hope Valley Plus Quilt

Another WIP can be checked off the list!

Hope Valley Plus Quilt


About 6 months from start to finish... a week or so to cut and piece, and a couple of weeks to quilt and bind. And the time in between... putting off basting the quilt :)

Hope Valley Plus Quilt


I've gotten used to quilting large tops on my mom's longarm machine. But I knew I wanted to quilt this one with straight lines on my sewing machine, so that would mean basting. Turns out the largest tile area in my house is the master bathroom. After clearing out the rugs, the cat's bed and her food and water, there was JUST enough room (as long as I stepped on the quilt's edges to get around it).

I love Hope Valley. I have fourteen fat quarters I am going to use on a project soon. Your quilt turned out really cute. It is giving me ideas.

This is the most beautiful use of the Hope Valley fabrics I've seen yet. Who would not want those fabrics after seeing this? Congrats!

Beautiful! I'm hoping to use my Hope Valley to make a plus quilt and it's great to see that it works really well.

This literally took my breath away, and my hubby who's looking over my shoulder said "Wow!" So inspiring and can't wait to meet you at the SS!

I just ordered a bunch of Hope Valley fat quarters and your quilt is one of the prettiest I've seen so far using this line.

What size squares did you start with? This is just so breathtakingly beautiful.

Nancy W. said...

Beautiful! Where can I find the pattern?

Would also love to know what size squares you started with! Or at least the final measurement of the quilt so I could quilt math it up :) It's just LOVELY! Great colors
