Hook


Here's my entry in Sinta and Sherri's Another Year of Schnibbles parade.

This quilt looks so much prettier in person, hopefully after it's quilted I can get a better picture.

I changed my Hook just a little, I wanted to be able to hang this quilt in my living room so I made my blocks about twice as big as the blocks in the pattern.  The original pattern finishes at 35" x 40", mine finished at 66 ' x 70".

The fabric is Little Black Dress 2 by BasicGrey for Moda.  I also used their Grunge fabric for the background.  If you're going to sew anything using Little Black Dress 2, try the light Grunge for your background, I love the look, it adds just the perfect little something.


This is Lifetime Quilt Number 130
The pattern is Hook by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
It has approximately 386 pieces.

Tomorrow is the parade, besides seeing Sinta And Sherri's finished Hook projects, I hope to see yours!  We'll also get to find out the project for April, it will be a fun day, no fooling!

  6. Well done and I also look forward to the parade. I bought the pattern early in the month, but I just didn't get to it. The helpful instructions seemed to hesitate me just enough to put it off. If and when I do make it, I'll probably make mine bigger as well so I can at least use it as a lap blanket on the couch. Love Little Black Dress II!

  7. Bravo! I think it's a stunner. Love the color palette. I was working on Chicken Feed for this month since Hook didn't really float my boat but I ran out of steam. Chicken Feed has been put aside for a little while. I wonder what tomorrow will bring for schnibbles... :)

  8. Wonderful! Seeing your use of Grunge has been inspiring. Silly, I know, but the name totally turned me off! I'll definitely take a look at those the next time I'm in a real quilt shop! :)

  9. I'm spending this week (Spring Break!) finishing up a quilt made from Little Black Dress II. I also thought the ivory grunge would be perfect for the sashing. After buying several yards of it, I found something in my stash that worked better. I chose the pattern "The Cut Up" because it works well with directional fabrics. How did you handle all the directional fabrics in this line?



    As always, Thelma, your quilt is gorgeous.

  12. As usual, Thelma, I love it. I love everything you show us ��. Keep the eye candy coming please.

  13. Well done Thelma! I must say I found this one very tedious with all the open seams and so much cutting. I did not have the triangle ruler so more time was taken with cutting as well. Hats off to you for making it bigger.

  14. So very sophisticated and beautiful in Little Black Dress. Everyone should make it their own and you did just that so very well. Great Parade. Judy C in NC.
