Sweet Dreams Quilt

I’ve shared a few progress posts of my half-square triangles on point quilt, here and here.  But I’ve never shared a photo of the finished quilt.

This past week I received a package in the mail with the latest issue of the new magazine Quilt it… Today.

Inside is a wonderful feature of my quilt…

Oh my, how I love the cozy bed!

After some debate, I ended up hand quilting this quilt… in the ditch creating diagonal squares.  I intended to quilt across to make triangles, but I could never wrestle it away from my family for long enough to work on it more.

Hand quilting was definitely the way to go.  The feel of a hand-quilted quilt is SO much softer and more cozy than a machine-quilted quilt.  Combined with the wonderful flannel backing, the Sweet Dreams Quilt is big and soft and perfect for snuggling under.  It is by far the most loved quilt I’ve ever made.

If you’ve not seen the new magazine Quilt it… Today.  You need to check it out.  I am truly honored to be featured in this awesome new magazine.  It is full of wonderful quilt patterns, inspiration, and great quilting tips.

If you’d like to order a subscription to Quilt it… Today, it is truly a bargain at $12.95 a year for 6 magazines.  You can check out their website here for more information.  You can order a subscription online here or send a check to:
