Heather Ross mix


stats:
57 x 74 inches (washed)
a mix of Heather Ross fabrics
9 inch squares
quilting is "orange peel"
batting is bamboo


my name is Linda, and I'm a Heather Ross fabric hoarder.  


My husband asked me who I was giving this quilt to.  I said, "are you kidding?"  I can't even calculate how much your hard earned money this cost you :)





This rare piece was one of those early ebay experiences where you don't realize what your fingers just did till you have to pay for it.  It one took 3 family members simultaneously bidding to win it.  (I made them swear in a blood pact to never repeat what I paid.)




this piece came off a pj bottom from TJ Max





princess and the pea


 Heather draws from the mind of a 6 year old . . . don't ya just love it!?!





the pansies are still looking great and the maiden hair fern is multiplying. . .








I learned how to quilt this orange peel design HERE.






the VW buses were also from pj's 



 and so was the tag :)





Do you have any Heather Ross?

  2. This turned out so cute! Simple patchwork can be just as awesome as a complicated design if the fabric is awesome.

  3. Congrats on all your finishes! I wish I had stashes of HR, but the good stuff was out long before I started quilting *sigh*
