moonlight in the trees quilt


Now, before you start feeling bad for us thinking that Spring is never coming to Vermont, let me reassure you that it is. Not as fast as it’s coming for those of you in other parts, but we have had a few spring-like days recently. These photos were taken about a month ago during (hopefully!) the last snowstorm of the winter. (watch, now that I said that…)


Anyway, the quilt! I posted photos of the top of it here. It’s made of the beautiful voile fabrics from Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks, in the moonlight palette. I think this color palette is just gorgeous! And you already know how much joy I get from simple patchwork squares. I really never tire of them.


For the backing, I decided to add a little extra purple, so I went with two plum-colored solids and a strip of the voile.


I quilted it with a grid pattern on the diagonal using a light gray thread and I went with a darker purple for the binding. It measures approximately 48″ x 56″ and it’s for sale in the shop.



A good selection of the voile fabrics can still be found at Hawthorne Threads and at Fabricworm.

Kona solids used: Plum & Woodrose for the backing, Garnet for the binding.

    Lovely! Simple is never out of style. Poor frozen Morgan! Well, he must have thawed out here in our balmy weather. 😎 Would love to hear how your trip out this way turned out. Did you get to Rosie’s quilt shop?

    I’m so pleased it no longer looks like that outside (though NOAA isn’t predicting much better for this first week of spring). Lovely quilt – and SO soft!

    Oh, I really love the colors you used! I’m not normally a purple type of person, but I really never thought to use it with blues and browns. Very pretty!

    For some reason I haven’t been able to get warm all day today, and I could hardly stand to look at your snowy pictures. They made me shiver, but the quilty eye candy kept me looking. I’ve got to get my hands of some of that voile one of these days!

    The quilt is great. The first photograph rocks, the composition is just brilliant. I would have that image as a piece of art in itself. Keep up the good work for us to enjoy.

    Always be cautious in Vermont when you think the snow has stopped! Hubby put the snowblower away already and I’m pretty sure that has jinxed us. I’m enjoying your blog and the quilts you make – very inspiring.
