Hope of Hartford!!!!!!




I will honestly say that for a long time I did not know the name of this block and I loved it!! Of course, I made it anyway and through doing a little "surfing" of all the quilt blogs, came across the name of my little lovely block!!! A friend gave me some of these brown pieces she was going to throw away *GASP* (shame on you LISA TRIPP!!) QUILTER'S MOTTO: Never throw any scraps away, especially if the fabric costs over SEVEN BLOOMIN DOLLARS A YARD GIRL!!!!!! But I digress, this very large and very pretty quilt top emerged!!! Like it? I do and it is not my usual BUSY pieced topper!!! Okay, so I can do other things and from now on I will not balk at trying new and seemingly simple patterns. Happy Quilting!!!!!

That's very lovely. I like the way you done the top part for the pillows. I could never, ever throw fabric away, I rarely pay $7 a yrd. I usually by all mine when they have 50% off sales.
