Vanilla & Blooms - hanging
I'm so happy to have finished up this quilt today. It seems like it's been a long and slow process.

Suburban Stitcher said...

It's beautiful! I can't believe that you quilted that yourself...on a sewing machine or longarm?

Prof. S said...

I *lovelovelove* this -- must remember to pair those DS prints with Bone. Gorgeous!!

Heather D. said...

I love it, and the photos are just lovely. Nice work. :)

Megan said...

I love how you used the DS fabrics in this quilt. It's a winner!

Jeni said...

Oooh, so pretty! It has such a lovely vintage feel to it! :)

Jessica said...

really pretty! Did you really start in 2001 or is that a typo? Either way, great accomplishment!

I subscribe on rss and usually don't have time to stop in and comment but I had to today! this is a great quilt! I love that you used this fabric line. I think it is a great line of fabric that is so accessible to everyone at a great price. I love the pattern too. GREAT GREAT job. I am a little (strike that A LOT) jealous that it isn't at my house:)

Kristie said...

Wow! I must say that I was scrolling through blogs and saw this quilt and my first thought was "Wow! That is a beautiful ANTIQUE quilt!" Then after reading I realized that it was not an ANTIQUE! You did an amazing job on it! What batting did you use?

Just gorgeous Jessica!

Karin said...

Love it! And I love that it already looks like an antique! So cool! I want to try this pattern, but only in reverse (white where you did print). I love the shape of those large white areas of your quilt :)

It's a beautiful quilt. I think that Kona Bone (instead of white) and the heavy quilting is what gives it that antique look everyone is talking about.

Great job! I know it feels good to have it done.

This is the perfect marriage of fabric and pattern. It's gorgeous!

So pretty and looks so snuggly already. I especially love the blue border.

Kristie said...

Beautiful :) I agree, these things take time....can't wait to cut into my DS fabric, but have some things to finish up first {sigh}. Always takes longer than I anticipate!

Oh wow. I didn't think I liked that pattern when I saw it on fig tree, but in those colors it is perfect. Such a lovely quilt. What a wonderful job you did.
