I finally finished my Hope Valley string quilt!
Oh, it feels like I have been working on this one forever. I started it more than a year ago with plans to make a quilt for Finley's room. I was planning on designing her room around this, but then Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow came out, and I made her baby quilt out of that. I pushed the string blocks to the side for the time being, knowing that I'd be back to them soon enough.
This one was a tough quilt for me to make at times. The string blocks are tedious and super repetitive, but I am glad I persevered. I really love the finish quilt. It will be another one for Finley's big girl bed someday. Remember, I even made a matching pillow!
pattern: paper pieced string block (8" finished)
fabrics: Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt and Kona coal (quilt top), Kona raisin (binding), a gray Target flat sheet for backing
dimensions: need to measure still, but it is an oversized twin
quilting: free motion quilting in a meandering pattern by me
Happy holiday weekend!
with love, Angela
