This quilt is so beautiful! You have inspired me to create a similar one using my mid-19th century repro fabrics left over from numerous Civil War dressmaking projects.

You inspire me a lot, I've already made one Jacob's Ladder block, 12 inches, is that your size too? And quilting by hand is impressing!

Handquilting gives so much more character

Your Jacob's Ladder is so pretty Lucy, I am also making this quilt but with a beige background and muted tones of plum, brown, pink and a little blue thrown in! I am hand piecing and really enjoying seeing how each block is coming together, will add a photo later today. Your tulip quilt is so beautiful, I am hoping that maybe someone could send me a copy of the Quiltmania mag as we do not get it here in Australia.

Luscious! The fabrics are wonderful. How big is this quilt? Hand quilting amazes me.

Dena said...

Jakob's Ladder is one of my favorite blocks. Looks like you're making great progress in quilting it.

You quilt in a large hoop also!?!? I enjoy it this way. Sometimes I'd like a frame I think, but haven't gotten around to getting one. I remember my great grandmother quilting on one w/her sister that hung from the ceiling. They would raise it up after they were finsihed. I have a photo on my blog somewhere back when I first started that shows one... I just finished a hand quilting project, so I'm taking a break. Didn't miss it a bit until I saw this photo. Looks like home to me..... :)

Your quilt is gorgeous, Lucy, and your hand quilting makes it even better. I got the magazine with your quilt in it...I am so proud for you!! I love to look at your tulip quilt.

vivi said...

beautiful..
I think the colours are really harmonious
this is what I find a little difficult yet, since I started learning patchwork, choosing colours (well, there are another difficult things, if I'm honest)
big hug
