hope valley baby zig zag


You knew I wouldn’t be able to resist immediately using some of the new Hope Valley in a quilt, didn’t you?

I used three of the prints to make up this cute little zig zag quilt, pairing those three prints with several solids – a few Amy Butler solids, and some Kona solids I had in my stash. These particular colors aren’t my usual go to colors – I’m usually drawn more to the brighter, more vibrant colors – but I’m really liking the more muted, vintage feel that this new line has. (I’m enjoying it so much that I’m already working on a second quilt with these fabrics!)


The back is primarily a lovely Amy Butler solid, with a little pieced section at the top (I love that yellow print!).


I quilted it simply, just following the zig zags 1/4″ from each seam, and used the yellow solid for the binding. It measures about 32″ x 37″ and is now for sale in the shop! Sold! Thanks so much Tiff!

    So I didn’t love Hope Valley when I first saw it, but it is PERFECT for a zig zag quilt. I also love the solids you put with it. It’s really nice 🙂

    Those are the colours I want in our basement when we eventually finish it. What a great project to showcase the fabric.

    I absolutely love it! I love the colors! And I love the zig zag!! I am also making a zig zag quilt right now. (I just blogged about it yesterday at alenajo.blogspot.com) I was actually inspired by one of your zig zag quilts. I am using moda’s figgy pudding for my quilt. Again, I love your beautiful zig zag quilt!
