DSQ aka 'The Quilt of Fear'

I finished it! Okay, I actually finished it about a month ago, but it has taken me this long to get around to blogging it. 

It is my Dead Simple Quilt.  Lynne of Lily's Quilts suggested this quilt along back in August.  Yes, that is NINE months ago.  Nothing like 'quilting along' with everybody else is there?!  But hey, it is finished and I am very pleased with it.

I am most pleased with the back of the quilt.  This is the side we actually have showing on our bed.  I find the 'front' of the quilt a bit too garish for the bedroom.

The solids are Klona colours Ash, Purple, Blush, Jade, and Gold


  1. Lovely - the front is great but I really like the back

  2. It's beautiful. I have no problem with colour, but do know that I like something restful in the bedroom. Did you quilt it in straight lines?

  3. This quilt is stunning! I have the same problem re finishing projects, well done on getting there in the end. I've recently started following you on Twitter, think I found you on #cbuk. If you have a minute or two please visit my blog thanks! Vicky x

  4. I really love this quilt and I love that you have made it reversible too!

  5. Fabulous quilt! Making it reversible and diagonal is such a great idea.

    Alice Amazing!!!
    I am gathering the courage to start a small quilt for my neice or nephew... I don't have nine months left! (mid you, it will need to be a bit smaller than your lovely monster!)
