AVTR – Houndstooth Quilt Blog Tour

Hello everyone! I am back again with another wonderful quilt pattern from the incomparable Bobbie S. over at A Vision To Remember.  This pattern the Houndstooth quilt is perfect for fledgling quilters like myself. I think the most complicated part of this pattern is the cutting (which I messed up on but we will get to that a little later.)

First things first… the disclaimer…. this pattern and fabric was provided to me in exchange for giving my fair and honest opinion. And that is what I intend to do. The fabrics I used today are also available in the AVTR shop for sale as well as the pattern.

Admittedly, the light yellow was a little out of my comfort zone because all of the other décor I select is always so dark.  But as I began to piece together my quilt, I feel in love with the combination of yellow and the dusty brown.

So somewhere during the process I managed to misplace 2 squares and a strip of the border.  I was able to mix and match a little to make it still look cohesive.  And who doesn’t love the giant houndstooth shapes created with the squares?

I think overall it was a win! And my son fell in love with this one during the process, so I will gift it to him!  He gets overlooked in my sewing a lot.

Thank you so much for coming to my post and stop by again soon!
