Happy Thursday, my Friends! I hope you are doing well. As promised, I am sharing another first time feature with you — this time it’s my Hole in The Wall quilt in Generation Q‘s May/June 2014 issue.
You do see why I named this quilt A Hole in The Wall, don’t you? [Hey, for once, the editor kept the name I had suggested for my quilt! Maybe there’s hope for my quilt-naming skill after all.]
I wish you could see this quilt in person to get a hold of the fabrics used in this quilt. The quilt uses fabrics from rather unlikely combinations – kids themed fabrics mixed with florals, for example – to give an “unexpected” element to the final design. The fabrics I used are all from Benartex: Gramercy, Solids, 10000 BC, English Rosey, Palm Springs, and Florabunda. You will find A Hole In The Wall very user-friendly for any fabrics you might have in your stash.
This is the very quilt that I spent a day ripping out stitches after the quilt was about 1/3 quilted. The original quilting scheme quit speaking to me, and it was a battle within me to decide whether to keep going or hunker down and get the seam ripper ready to work. The seam ripper won! And I have to say I am very happy with how the quilting turned out.
I hope you have enjoyed Hole In The Wall. Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for being such sweet friends!
