Queen of Hearts

I'm happy to report that I've completed one of the items from my Q1 Finish-Along list!


A couple of people mentioned that the quilt reminded them of Alice in Wonderland, and since then I haven't been able to not think of that whenever I look at the quilt. So, I've called it "Queen of Hearts".

The backing has something of a romantic feel about it, don't you think? It's a Timeless Treasures print I bought from Hall of Fabrics.  


I was a bit lazy with labeling, choosing to write the name of the quilt on one corner hanging pocket, and my name and date on the other corner. Somewhat lacking in detail perhaps, but it will suffice. 

Looking back at my original post about this quilt, I see that it is over a year old! Unable to decide whether to make it a cushion cover or a wall hanging I let it sit in a cupboard being neither. I am so, so happy to have it finished!

  1. That pop of red really makes for a stunning design. This would make a great pillow, but then you would hide that fabulous backing.

    1. Thank you Colleen. I ended up going for a wall hanging mainly because I was concerned the white would get grubby as a pillow cover. And yes, it would have been a shame to hide the backing. :)
