Squares & Rectangles

My Denyse Schmidt and Heather Ross combined quilt got finished a week ago, I just haven't got around to blogging it due to a bit of a nasty cold. Haven't been good on answering emails this week either, sorry about that. Luckily I took photo's when it was made because it is a rather cold gloomy day here today.

In the end I just went with simple squares and rectangles.


All of the Hope Valley fabric ended up as 3 inch finished squares.


With the Far Far Away II fabrics I decided to fussy cut them into larger squares and rectangles with some 3 inch ones as well.


Sleeping beauty was cut into 6 1/2 inch squares (finished size 6 inch).

Ooops, green sleepy beauty has a flower petal on her head, don't tell her, she might wake up!

Rapunzel in her tower became 3 1/2 inch x 12 1/2 inch rectangles (finished 3 x 12).


The Owl & the Pussycat were cut up into 3 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch rectangles (3 x 6 inch finished).


Because it was sunny a week ago, I was able to get the stained glass shots...!



It has been very enjoyable playing with these two fabric lines.

These fabrics looks like they were made for each other!
I've been reluctant to mix different fabric weights, but this makes me want to give it ago :-)
