Happy Sunday morning! I’m sharing my new Wonderland quilt this morning, which has been done for a couple of months but I only recently got around to taking a picture of it.  This quilt is so large it took me a while to find the manpower (and willpower) to photograph it.

I’m calling this quilt Wonderland, because the black and white checkerboard pattern combined with the colorful Denyse Schmidt New Bedford fabric gives me an Alice in Wonderland vibe every time I look at it.  Anyone else with me on that?


This quilt started as a small sketch on a piece of graph paper and kept growing until it became a massive project that took many days longer than I planned on. In fact, I didn’t have enough black and white fabric to finish and had to order more.  Don’t you hate when that happens?


The plan when I started this quilt was to make the three center pieces and then figure the rest out from there. Once I had them done, I realized I needed more fabric, more design, more everything than I thought I would, and that’s when the quilt started to grow.


But…I think this is one of those cases where not having a plan worked out for the best. I really like the striking look of the black and white checkerboard pattern mixed with the bright and colorful Denyse Schmidt fabric, so I’m calling this a success.

Now I’m off to brainstorm the back of the quilt. I’m debating between a black and white patterned fabric or something colorful.  More to come.
