One of my favorite quilt blogs, Oh Fransson, has a great tutorial for using fusible interfacing to make a postage stamp block like this. This piecing method is a huge time saver and a sure fire way to get accuracy when sewing together small squares. Each of these squares measures 1-1/2" finished; the entire quilt measures one square foot and is a sturdy little wall-hanging.
I continue to eke out as much from my Hope Valley stash as I can but now I'm down to just threads of many of the patterns. I initially purchased a fat quarter bundle and made several projects out of it. It was a really good run and it's time to move on.
This was machine quilted on my domestic Huskvarna using a gold colored rayon thread. The binding was machine sewn as well.
hope valley, LOVE - gorgeous. simple and classic and utterly stunning!
Wow, that little quilt packs quite a punch...it's fabulous! I'm going to have to try that technique. I love minis!
Hope Valley is one of my favourite lines too! but I was late to the party and I'm still collecting all the prints!
