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!

  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 leslie@tangerinebloom.com 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.
