Houndstooth Quilt

I typically don't make quilts with a lot of little pieces. To be honest, I don't always have the patience needed to be exact in my piecing. But, when you're sewing a gazillion bits of fabric together, exactness counts.

I had to do a LOT of trimming on this one and that's purely due to my own piecing skills and not the pattern. The pattern was a cinch to follow and I'm actually debating about making another one, only bigger. Like, king-sized bigger for my bed. 

I can't even fathom how many 3 inch squares it would take to make a king-sized quilt. I seriously love this pattern and I have another idea to make it just a bit different, so a couple more tries at this quilt is more than likely.

In the meantime, I can cross another item off The List and get this quilt wrapped and sent to a sweet little three-week old baby boy. Welcome to the world!


  1. Just visiting via Blogger's Quilt Festival - love your quilt.

  2. This is the perfect quilt for my daughter's nursery! Can you tell me who makes the fabrics you used? I have been looking for a gray and teal combo just like you used. Would you consider making this exact quilt for sale??

  3. Coni - Thanks for loving this quilt as much as I do. I'm actually a little sorry I gave it away :) I would definitely consider making this quilt for sale. Email me at and we can talk about it.

  4. Leslie, I'm thinking about ordering this quilt pattern. But little pieces drive me crazy. In the middle making a quilt with so many 2 1/2 squares. Did it take a long time to make?

  5. Where did you get this quilt pattern. The ones I have found on-line are not like this. This one is so much better.

    You can find the pattern in V & Co.'s shop

  7. Are these Kona Solids? Mind sharing which grey that is? LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!
