Innocent...Something or Other Quilt


Have you ever spent $100 on fabric, hours and hours in planning, changing, sewing, ripping, resewing, changing some more, and finally throw your hands up and just finish the quilt just to be done with it??

I now have. 

I finished this quilt a bit ago but just never got around to photographing it.  Lazy?  Me??? Or maybe it just has something to do with my apathy towards this quilt.

This quilt was definitely my first real foray into making an entire quilt improve style.  It started out as a charm square quilt, morphed into a charm square on point quilt, and ended as a charm square on point with sashing quilt with days/weeks of agonizing mental debate over each step.

After every change I made it still just didn't look right and I am still not sure if I got it completely.

I really did love this I first saw this collection of fabric, when the idea popped into my head, while it was making it - but now, I don't know, it's just kinda meh to me.  Either way I am hoping someone loves it because I am donating it to the Texas Wildfire collection.

Also as the title suggests I am totally at a loss as to what to call this quilt.  Any ideas?

Fabric: Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush, Kona Sky, Kona Eggplant, and Kona Windsor


  1. I think it's beautiful. Love the fabrics and really love the layout. Call it the Beautiful quilt!!

  2. I don't know what you don't like. I think it is lovely. It reminded me of Cathedral windows until I clicked the thumbnail (and I love that quilting style). I adore the fabrics and I love the aubergine colour you have used for the backing. I am no good with naming things. Good luck with that. Definitely don't call it MEH!

  3. The creative process is definitely frustrating sometimes. I know what you mean about feeling ambivalent about a final result, especially when it turns out really different from your initial plan! This is really gorgeous though. I love your border, binding and backing color choices. Great quilting.

  4. I am sorry you don't love it, especially after all the time & money that went into it -- but someone else will ADORE it. And *that* is something you can love!

  5. I love it, so I am sure others will to! Looks like jewels or diamonds to me.

  6. Absolutely gorgeous quilt! I love AMH's fabric it's so eclectic.
