A Princess Castle Quilt : :

A Princess Castle Quilt

Confession, taking pretty outdoor quilt photos in winter weather isn't that much fun for us! We snapped a few at the park just one street over, but the rest were taken back at home where it's nice and warm!

This is the princess castle quilt I made for my niece Josie, her request! It was such a fun one for me to make, I loved the chance to work with such a sweet, princess-y fabric pull and color palette!

Princess quilt beginnings

I started with a few princess fabric prints from the Once Upon a Time collection by Alexander Henry, added in a couple dainty florals from my stash, some pastel polka-dot prints, and the rest are stripes and geometrics mostly from Cloud9 Fabric's Simpatico collection!

It's another quilt made using my quick & easy quilt as you go method. The flappy shutters and pendant flags at the top of both towers were fun details to add and I do love this Riley Blake Half Inch Stripe gray & yellow  binding!

Bound in RBD Stripes!

It was a big hit with Josie, I'll show you that soon!!

Once I photograph and share the Marvel Comic quilt, I plan to do a little 2013 quilt show and tell, review of sorts, hopefully early next week!

Happy New Year, friends!    Maureen

    1. Thank you, Tracey! I was a little worried I didn't take enough pictures, but it was just too cold out! I even forgot to get a pic of the back, which is just one big piece of the blue princess print. :) Thanks again!

    1. I didn't draft a pattern for this one yet, I was too rushed in making it in time to give this Christmas. I can't share for sure when, but I do plan to revisit this quilt as either a pattern to offer or a free tutorial to share! I loved making it! I'll be sure to share the details here once I do!

  12. This is my most favorite quilt you've made, so far.
    I know it's probably leans toward the simpler ones for you, but just so
    striking in color and presentation. The winter backdrop makes it all
    the more stunning! I too, would like to purchase a pattern, and codes
    for colors (even tho my quilting talent doesn't measure a bit to yours,
    I'd love to give it a try).
    Ok, now you have the difficult task of making the rest of 2014 even better! haha!!! (jk)!! ;-)

    1. Hi Andrea! I can't share for sure when, but I do plan to revisit this quilt as either a pattern to offer or a free tutorial to share! I loved making it, but I was just under such a time crunch to get this one done, I didn't have the time to take photos, write out each step as it came together. I've already handed it over to it's recipient, but I can try to get those measurements for you this weekend. I'll add those here once I do!

      xx Maureen

  24. Awesome, I intend to make this in a different colour scheme for our son. I've mentioned your quilt on my Dutch blog http://eigenwijslandelijkgeinspireerd.blogspot.nl/2014/04/ridder-quilt-voorbereidingen-op-pasen.html . I hope it's okay that I have put a photo of your blog there (with the name of your blog with it) to give my readers an idea of what I want to make and where I've got this idea. Thanks for your inspiration!! Such a great quilt! Greetings from Holland, Annemieke.
