Homestead Quilt, Complete


This quilt is finished! I hand-quilted it in a week, including hand-binding it. I hadn't realized that it's large enough to cover a twin bed--a nice surprise!


Should Giles choose to accept it, it's going back to New York with him.

If Giles isn't interested, I would be. :) Love the quilt and the title.

It looks like his kind of thing.

Just beautiful Anna. I love how the turquiose (?) square on the quilt matches the bedside table.

Love the brown hues~some day, some day, I'll learn to quilt~

I think this is perhaps my favorite of the quilts you have posted. I love the humble, earthy, wholeseome brown tones and the bright spark of blue in the middle. Amazing. I love it!

That pop of turquoise in the midst of the browns and neutrals is just perfect.

Another wonderful quilt! I do so love your ability to create such beauty from the leavings.
When you do these lovely eclectic combinations of fabrics, mixing cottons and wool and such, is the quilt washable?

Anna said...

Kimberlee, I would never make a quilt I wouldn't throw in the wash! They're for living on, not just looking at, in my opinion.

Oh So pretty... I know Giles will love it..

Kimberlee said...

Thanks, Anna. That's what I suspected you would say, just wasn't sure about washing the wools. :-)

Really nice quilt! Love those colors together!

Cheri said...

Do you use a frame or a hoop when you quilt?

Love the pop of aqua!

I wish Giles would choose to give it to some random lady on the internet. Namely, me. :) I think it is my favorite you've made so far. That turquoise square just captures my imagination!
