The House on Hardwick Lane

I have been busy working away on lots of stuff that I can't show. What do you think about that? I am doing a Halloween stitchery quilt, a Halloween pieced and applique quilt that will be going to the quilter next week and working on the next book. So, since I can't show you any of those things. Here is something I can show. This quilt is called The House on Hardwick Lane. It was inspired by my friend Ann's home on Hardwick Lane. The quilt is finished and the covers are at the printer. It should be available next week. I think it makes a great summer quilt.

It was a lot of fun to make and it goes together quickly. The applique pieces are pretty big and the piecing is super simple. The stars are all appliqued. The center block is a 24" square and the quilt finishes at 52" x 52"

Sorry to be such a lousy blogger but that really is all I have to share now. Happy summer days and

Happy Quilting, Dawn

  1. I think it turned out wonderfully... and don't even think about being a bad blogger. I haven't posted in a week, either, but then again I blog for me. As long as you keep coming up with great patterns, I wouldn't worry about it!
