Labour of... well... Love

I know every quilter has that project that takes a long time.  Probably in reality this one of mine didn't take that long but when it is made as a commission project, it did take too long.  I have to admit, I wasn't crazy about the fabric initially but definitely grew to love it:

The quilt pattern proved to be a challenge as well because I used a pattern from Camilla Roskelley's Simply Retro (which is an absolutely beautiful book of quilt patterns) but I had to tweak it to fit the look we were going for and therefore I felt I wasn't piecing the blocks together as efficiently as I could have.  This is mostly due to my lack of experience...

BUT in the end...

I think it turned out pretty darn good!  I am very proud of this quilt!


  1. It's a great finish. I love the few pops of colour.

  2. I think it turned out pretty darn good too!! :) I love the darker border and the lower volume colors in the blocks. This quilt is fantastic!

  3. This is fantastic Deb. The low volume with bits of color make for a really pretty quilt. Well done. :-)
