Flea Market Fancy Quilt–Full Reveal

Flea Market Fancy & Katie Jump Rope Quilt

I’ve shared peeks of this quilt previously but this is the first time you are seeing it in its entirety.  Of course you all recognize this quilt as the quilt I had intended to donate to Japan Project modern–however, with that project no longer taking place this quilt is currently residing in my family room until I decide where it will end up. =)

Hand Quilting Detail

This quilt is made up of a combo of Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope fabrics which I think work so well together.  My mom and I did the hand quilting on this quilt using Finca Perle Cotton size 8 in Dark Brown.  The quilt pattern is a slightly revised version of this free pattern.  I preferred the framed squares as opposed to the solid squares and I also made the quilt a bit smaller than the pattern called for.

Back Detail

For the back of the quilt, I opted to use a solid white.  This isn’t something I normally do but I wanted to show off the hand quilting pattern–I think it looks pretty neat (you’ll have to ignore the wrinkles).  For a parade of more great quilts be sure to stop by Amy’s Creative Side and browse around a bit.

  • Oh I love the white with all the colorful squares. Great job!

  • Oohhh, I love this quilt even more after seeing the finished product!!! I’ve adored this quilt since you posted the first sneak peek 🙂 If you reeeeeaally can’t think of a place for it – I have a lovely and lonely corner of my couch that it could call home 😉

  • I agree with Rebecca. I will gladly take it off your hands! It’s beautiful!

  • This is beautiful, and as you know, the quilting inspiration for my Popbeads quilt, as soon as I can get it basted (man, I HATE that part…)

  • Very pretty, I like your idea of the solid back to show your quilting. Was it hard to use the Perle cotton to quilt? I’ve seen lots of it lately and wondered.

  • As a hand quilter myself, I love your stitches. The colors of the quilt are so fun, too. If this quilt needs a home, it could come to my home and be really appreciated ; ) My son’s even point out hand quilted quilts at shows.

  • It’s such a lovely quilt, Corey! And you were smart to keep the back a solid. The stitches are awesome.

  • Great quilt… much better than the pattern! I love it! So, did you make the DS fabric 1 1/2″ strips and the center 3 1/2″??? Your mom did a great job on the quilting… so sweet!
