A while back I purchased this Houndstooth Quilt Pattern from StudioCherie. When I had seen it I just had to know how it went together – I just loved how it looked! The pattern called for just two fabrics. Now, if any of you know me or my work at all – that’s a pretty much impossible request of me. Also, if you know me I like to use patterns as a ‘suggestion’ or a starting point. So, instead of using just two fabrics I used LOTS of fabrics – hand-dyed fabrics for that matter. Here’s what my Hounds tooth quilt turned itself into: As you can see…same pattern – two completely different effects or looks. Each are fabulous in their own way, reaching different audiences. I think this is a perfect example on how two people can start at the same place and end in two way different ends. The other reason I bought this quilt was because in the end you can make a really fun square block out of your ‘scraps’ from the houndstooth. Which you can either piece as part of your quilt back (shown above) or use them as an inspiration/starting point for a second quilt (shown below). Geometric Madness In the end, all I can say is that I am so happy with what Studio Cherie’s pattern inspired me to create – not one, but two heirloom quilts!
