I was thinking that I would put this quilt away once I had it pinned together and then quilt it after my son's visit. I forgot that he sleeps til noon. LOL.

So I got busy and quilted and bound it over the last two days. I was lucky to find some of the fabrics that were featured in the original Jo Morton fabric. They are so lovely and I would never have picked these out on my own. I think they are so beautiful, plus I found some others that I really loved too. My favorite is the background called, Covey Toile. It has pheasants running all over it. Unfortunately the pieces in the quilt are so small that a lot of the beauty of the fabrics is lost.
The other thing that is interesting about this quilt is that much of the fabric is of the same value, so everything runs together. I usually like more contrast, but this works well. It is supposed to be a Victorian style quilt and I think it definitely is. I like it very much.


  1. I like it very much, too! Beautiful finish--sometimes a son who sleeps until noon can be a good thing! But only sometimes. : )

  2. I like the fabrics a lot. The background was the think that caught my eye first. Very pretty.
