A very charming quilt top!

I spent most of my sewing time this weekend working on finishing up my Prince Charming quilt top.  I thought it would be somewhat of a mad dash toward the end, so I could sit down to watch the season finale of "The Killing" last night on AMC (which was awesome!), but I finished with plenty of time to spare.

I'm really happy with how this quilt top is looking!  I just adore these fabrics, Tula Pink really outdid herself with this line.  There aren't a ton of collections where I love every print, but this is absolutely one one them.

As for the pattern, it comes from Hyacinth Quilt Designs.  I first stumbled upon it via some the blocks that WendyLou picked for my circle of do.Good.Stitches in May and really enjoyed making them.  I think the pattern is perfect for highlighting larger repeat fabrics, like some of Tula's, and I think Megan is thinking about doing one of these quilts using Jay McCarroll's amazing Habitat collection - nudge, nudge, Megan!

    I've been watching "The Killing" too! Kind of annoyed that we still don't know whodunit and AMC shows take for-ev-er to come back on.

  36. I absolutely love the quilt! I was excited to see you are watching the killing. We're watching too, but the original danish version. The tension is really catching. We've started the second season (that is available in the danish version!) I'm looking forward to tommorow when quo will publish the quilt design! Eva-Marie
