The Most Pieces Ever

I made a quilt that will come out in Love Patchwork & Quilting that will appear in an issue in the autumn. It had more pieces in it than any quilt I have ever made. But due to the previous quilt turning into a planning and pattern writing nightmare I really thought this one out before I even started cutting fabric. In fact -  miracles of miracles - I even cut all the pieces out before I started sewing and I was the chain piecing champion here in this household for a few days.

There are almost 1,000 pieces in this quilt top. And I absolutely love it. For such a 'busy' quilt it was far more easy to make than I expected it to be.

And even how I wanted to quilt it came to me as I finished it up. I usually hit a road block at that point but not this time.

And I have got to say, I can not wait to show it to you.



  1. I can't wait to see it. I love bitty pieces!

  2. I finished making the last of 630 HSTs last weekend. Can't believe how long it took to sew and trim them up!! Lovely colours you've chosen for your quilt. Wish that magazine came out in Australia.

  3. Those colours are awesome! I shall wait eagerly for the big reveal!

  4. It looks , the glimpse we can see . Your shoulder must have been aching after all that cutting

  5. Is there ever an end to your creativity??? I am totally OK with lots of pieces so long as they can be assembled with chain piecing!! Can't wait to see the quilt!

  6. Great blog you people have made here on this blog site, I will absolutely appreciate your work.
