Hope Of Hartford

i said when we were doing this block that i would also make the small quilt in the book with all Hope of Hartford blocks.so far i have only cut out my pieces.the fabric with the flowers and flags will be the backing for this small quilt.

so officially i am working on 3 quilts from this book all with the ribbon border. the one with 12 in. blocks will measure 67 in. x 83 in. the two with 6 in. blocks will measure 44 in. x 50 in. the book gives fabric requirements for making the Hope of Hartford quilt in both the 6 in. and 12 in. blocks.

I like the fabric you chose for your quilt blocks. Very bright & cheery looking. And not messy at all! LOL!

I made this block for one of my quilting bees and loved it. It never occured to me to make a whole quilt of this block. This is going to be awesome!
