A February Finish

 I have had this pattern, called "Little Lies" by Laura McDowell Hopper and Mitch Hopper, for quite some time.  I finally got busy and sewed it up.  I am always attracted by lots of negative space in a pattern so I can have fun with the quilting.  I used Alison Glass scraps for the three blocks and the background is an Essex Yarn Dyed Linen/Cotton. Graphite I think. 

On the back is Kona Sangria with a strip of  Alison Glass Remix Ex Libris Art Theory in Charcoal. 

I freemotion quilted in a wacky intersecting squarish organic design in the background using an Aurifil 40# light grey.  I used a pretty dark pink Aurifil 40# thread for the back and the lines in the blocks and also for stitching the binding to the front.  

This little quilt measures 48"x56". 





I hope you have time today to work on a project! Feels so good to get one completed.   😊


  1. What a great design and I love the back - two for one! xx

  2. Oh Linda! This is amazing! The back is just as beautiful as the front. As always, your quilting is gorgeous!


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
