I can soon have some time to get this baby quilted! I'm so excited to have the top put together. It's going to be my own personal quilt to snuggle under, and it helps that it's just the perfect rich, saturated colors for my living room.
Looking at the whole Hope Valley collection together, one thing that surprises me is the way that one rich reddish brown print stands out as being so differernt from the rest. I pieced this completely randomly. I was waaay too lazy to lay it all out on my design wall, and it's kind of interesting to see how all the colors are quite well mixed in. Although seeing it in the photo here makes me see that there's a fair bit of that dark brown in the bottom left hand corner!
I'm happy I added this all time favorite print, as it adds a bit of fun and whimsy to this very 'grownup' fabric.
And of course I have to flaunt the wee tiny bit of Flea Market Fancy that I own!
Now I just need to decide on the backing. A cozy flannel would be nice for cuddling, but a vintage sheet would be economical and fast. And then there's this quilt back which I'm crazy over...
