Hope Valley Quilty Goodness

Oh Hope Valley, how I love thee. I fell in love with this collection the second I laid eyes on it. The colours are just stunning and my favourite print changes on a daily basis.


I really like how this came out.

I treated this sort of as a trial run for the quilt I'm making for our bed out of Hope Valley. I figured if I could cut into a jelly roll and charm pack, I could finally hack into the half yard cuts sitting pretty on my shelf. Well, one can hope.

I used an Ikea cotton fabric for the backing because I thought both the grey and the leaves kind of mirrored the Hope Valley prints.

For the binding, I used some of the leftover strips to make a patchwork binding, and I love it :) There's something so whimsical and cute about patchwork binding, no?

It ended up being 41" by 51" and is currently available in the shop SOLD! :)

Seriously, Hope Valley can do no wrong. I didn't instantly love it when I first saw it, but now I do, and everything I've seen made with it is gorgeous. Will have to cut into my stash soon...

Super awesome! I love the whole line together - they go so well in color and print. And they look great with the white. I think you have a winner for your bedroom quilt!

It's beautiful Audrie! I have a fat quarter bundle of Hope Valley (it'll be paired with Kona Coal) just waiting to be turned into a quilt for our bed too!

Krista said...

Very pretty! I like the Hope Valley line when it's all used together like this. This is simple yet beautiful.

Thanks to you I just ordered the fat quarter set of Hope Valley. My pocketbook thanks you as well. ;) But seriously, beautiful job! I am going to use your quilt as inspiration to make a similar (bigger size) quilt for me!

Beautiful! The placement of the prints and colors are so pretty, and I love that Ikea fabric on the back, (I've got some, too!)
