Chambray Rose

This is the second quilt I made.  I started this in September and finished it in November.  The fabric is all from one range - Chambray Rose by Shabby Chic.  I bought it from Pelenna Patchworks.  The pattern is called Garden Trellis and was a free download from The Whimsical Workshop.

I used 80/20 cotton batting by Hobbs and quilted it by hand.

I used another fabric from the range for the backing.  The finished size is 58" square, just the right size to use as a topper on my double bed.


  1. Your hand quilting is fantastic! Looks great!

    1. Thank you. I must learn to use a thimble if I am to hand quilt any more as I ended up with callouses on my finger!

    1. Thank you. I never thought I would love making the bed every morning as much as I do now. Spreading the quilt out just makes my heart zing!

  3. Yikes! This is our SECOND quilt! Amazing! And your hand quilting is lovely! I understand your pain when it comes to hand sewing. I have to keep trying the thimble thing. When I use it I feel like I am all thumbs!

  4. Beautiful - love the line of fabric. Great job for your second quilt - I would never have known. Quilting is very nice.
