Snow In The Valley...

Well, what can I say?

I did it again.

I fell in love with a quilt.

One that I made.

Oh, Mercy!

10/7...edited to add:  took it to work to
show my coworkers and one of them bought it!  

You know that there's
nothing I like better
than a pieced back.

This one was a challenge.

Here's the problem...
I have more of this fabric,
but I want to keep a specific amount
set aside to use in the future.
So, to get the size backing I needed for this quilt,
I used up every single scrap piece
larger than 5 inches that I could find!

I was almost beginning to feel
like one of the king's men
in the Humpty Dumpty rhyme!
(you know...'all the king's horses & all the king's men
couldn't put Humpty together again!")

 Here are the stats:
Started: September 6, 2011.
Finished: October 5, 2011.
Fabrics:  Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt
& Kona cotton solid in Snow.
Size:  Approx. 58 inches square after laundering.
Pattern:  Summer Sampler Series found here.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Very, very pretty and that is the first time I have ever seen a pieced back, that is pretty too.

Another masterpiece! I have a hunch this quilt might just find it's permanent resting place on your bed!

Is it bad that I love the back more than the front?! Such beautiful happy colors!
