Hello lovely lovelies♡ A lovely welcome to you♡ A new year♡ A new year filled with imagining and dreaming; and the enjoyment of stitching new pretties♡ A new year for lots of slow stitching on Sundays♡
Why, I have a finished quilt to reveal. Hydrangea Cobblestones is finished. Actually, my hydrangea pretty was completed in early spring last year when the blossom trees, the pendulous wisteria, daffodils, bluebells and irises were sashaying in the spring air; but I have left it till now to showcase it because, well, a quilt with the moniker of Hydrangea Cobblestones really needs to have a photo or two taken with real, ridgy didge; bonafide hydrangea blooms. It really needs to be photographed with a hydrangea or two. It really truly does.
This queen sized quilt was imagined after happening upon some gorgeous Robin Pickens fabric called Cottage Bleu. A beautiful collection with big, bold hydrangeas flourishing all over with a flutter of butterflies scattered here and there. The complementary fabrics are sweet little dimity prints. On the selvedge is printed "How calmly blue soothes and sings softly in the sky." Yes indeedy, this gal's heart is forever blue and the hue blue will always soothes my soul.....as do blue hydrangeas.
Shall we perhaps have a little look???? =)
I must say I'm rather glad I brought metre upon metre of this gorgeous fabric on a whim. I must say too, that having used the fabric for the backing as well, all the fabrics have been used. 'Tis always a good feeling, isn't it, when a quilt uses up the fabrics? Love, love, love this quilt. LOVE the hydrangea fabric and all the other complementary fabrics which dance a happy dance. What's not to love about summer and beautiful, blue hydrangeas??!! What's not to love about my happy Hydrangea Cobblestones??!! But then....I am just a wee bit biased. =)
Until the next time........
