Remember this one? I began it back in April by joining two lovely fabric lines together...Heather Ross's Far Far Away II and Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley.
Combining the cotton Hope Valley with the heavier linen base Far Far Away worked out really well and they sewed up beautifully together.
Having the gorgeous fairytale fabrics like Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Owl and the Pussycat, I decided I must find a castle to hang this quilt off. Not too far from me is the gorgeous Manyung Art Gallery that looks just like a miniature castle don't you think?!
To go along with the fairytale theme I wanted to quilt this one in a bit of a fanciful manner, so I did a curvy zigzag over every seam...
and then used stipple stitch in the fairytale blocks only (click on the photo's to get a better look!).
The back of the quilt was designed by using leftovers from my stash piles plus an extra yard of orange and purple.
I'm really happy with how it turned out.
A finish always feel great! xo
