Hopscotch Finish

Hopscotch in Bliss

I am doing a little happy dance here whilst I show you this one.
I am so pleased with how it has turned out.

I LOVE the fabric
I LOVE the design
I LOVE the quilting

I LOVE the triangles and the stars

and I LOVE the BACK

and I LOVE that my 9 year old wants it on her bed.
Now I just need to make Keegan some pillows to go with it :o)

~ Quilt Stats ~

Pattern - Hopscotch by Thimble Blossoms

You know, there is only one down fall (if I can call it that) from making this quilt and it is simply that I do not have a Jelly Roll of Bliss anymore for a future project :(  but I do have a beautiful quilt to show for it :) and lets face it, a beautiful quilt on a bed has to be better than a jelly roll on a shelf!

Today I am going to link up with

Fresh Poppy Design

Thank you so much for stopping by.


  1. Sharon it is just gorgeous.... what a great quilt and definitely worth using your jelly roll of Bliss for....

  2. Your quilt is beautiful, and the quilting complements it perfectly. Love that you put the stats down the bottom - blogs are good for keeping record of our projects.

  3. Congrats on finishing such a beautiful quilt...on now you can see all the wonderful fabric as it should be in a quilt not rolled up on the shelf.

  4. Oh Yes I can see why you love it
    You will just have to go shopping to replace the jelly roll

  5. Sharon it is gorgeous,well done and i can see why Keegan wants it on her bed,awesome.xx

  6. Bliss is the perfect word for that quilt Sharon, it is gorgeous. Fabric on the shelf gives a little burst of happiness but your quilt on your daughters bed must amplify that by a million. Great result! Tracee xx

  7. It's gorgeous Sharon - I can see why she wants it on her bed. I'm like you - Just a charm pack and candy bar left of Bliss in my house - Sad days :)
