hazel’s quilt


I’m still plugging away at those unfinished quilts when I get a chance! This one is a quilt top I made for Hazel almost exactly a year ago. It’s made from Heather Ross’s Tiger Lily line for Windham paired with a bunch of that great polka dot print by Bonnie Christine.


I gave Hazel a few backing options and she immediately selected this older Heather Ross tadpole print. I don’t blame her — it’s so soft! (She picked it less for the softness and more because Max has the matching print on the back of his Tiger Lily quilt). We added a strip of a print from Heather’s Briar Rose line, which happens to pair quite well.


I quilted it with horizontal straight lines (again, to match Max’s…), and used a green and white stripe for binding.

(complete with leftover yogurt from lunch!)

I spent a couple days hand sewing the binding and every time Hazel saw me with it she excitedly asked if it was ready for her to sleep under. It’s fun to finish a quilt for someone who is so excited about it!



Tiger Lily is still available at these great shops:
Hawthorne Threads
Fat Quarter Shop
Stash Fabrics and
Llama Fabrics.

    I love the quilt, and the fabric! I made a quilt for my daughter (it was also backed with one of the prints from Tiger Lily) and she was pretty excited, too. It helped motivate me to finish.

    I agree — making quilts for your own kids and seeing their anticipation grow is just so satisfying! Also I must thank you for showing me how to use the pieces of Tigerlilly I’ve been looking at with growing uncertainty — it looks fantastic with a large dose of neutral fabric.

    Gorgeous quilt. I love the little stripes in the corner. I agree it is nice to make something for someone who wants it so much. My kids are the same. Every time I make something they try to snaffle it up

    Pretty quilt, but your daughter steals the show! She is adorable, and the third picture cracked me up with your kids standing in front of your husband’s legs, making it look like they are somehow holding the quilt up. πŸ™‚

    Love your quilts, always!

    Those kids are cute as buttons! At first I thought there must have been some ice-cream bribery going on – but no bribery required obviously. Hazel looks super happy with her quilt.

    I love that you repeated the background dot fabric triangles in order to make the Tiger Lily pieces look randomly placed. Brilliant! Cute, cute Hazel….. πŸ™‚

    She’s a doll! I love the binding. Stripes like that are so hard to find. I’m plugging away at finishing a mountain of tops too.

    Oh, look at her! She’s so big now! Great quilt, especially loving the backing. Glad you could make it so much like Max’s.
