The Sleepy Hollow Quilt {Triangles}, Or I’m Actually Making Progress

10 October 2013 | by Jen in Sewing

It’s been so long since my last post I nearly forgot how to edit this blog, ha!  And it feels strange to type words in my real voice as opposed to my “work self” — and in complete sentences!  (No text-y shorthand here.)

So, it’s time for my annual Sleepy Hollow Quilt post where I talk about the quilt I’ve dying to make but never get around to doing…until now.   This is my 4th post about this quilt (here’s the first, second, and third) and I’ve made real progress!  As in triangles have been cut out as you can plainly see.

Some of the original prints I selected have been switched out for ones I like better.  That’s one of the things I really love about quilts: you get the opportunity to sample from a vast selection of beautiful and harmonious prints.   Many of the patterns I’ve picked out are 18th and 19th C reproduction which was such a glorious time for fabric design.

Not to throw a wrench in the blanket-making progress but I’m considering testing out the piecing by constructing something small like a tea cozy.  I never thought I’d need one but my pot of tea cools off way too fast!

    You’re back! I tend to scroll through your blog on days when the Internet feels particularly uninspiring, and it always hits the spot.

      Aw, thanks Christy! I hope to post more often, at least more than every few months. :) Thanks for stopping by!

      ooooh! This looks SO lovely!….what is that dark foresty green floral print (4th from the top) called? I would love to find that fabric for a winter frock for my wee one. You have a lovely eye!! : )

        Thanks, Sweet Marjorie! Sorry, I have no idea what that fabric is called although I think I got it from http://www.thecalicocottagequiltshop.com/. It was over a year ago when I bought it so I don’t know if it would be in stock. But this shop has loads of good stuff!
