My Precious QAL

I broke out some fabric to make Esther a little summer quilt.  I haven’t quite finished it up yet and plan to add a coordinating border, but I pieced all the blocks and sashing this week.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to omit the batting and  just back it with soft flannel to make it even more summery.


The rules stipulate that this needs to be out-of-the-ordinary stash fabric, and I hope these blocks qualify!  I think they are Alexander Henry and I bought them years ago from The Fat Quarter Shop.  Each block depicts a different fairy tale, like Rapunzel and The Princess and the Pea.  They are just so fun!


There are Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella.


And what story is this fox from?  I have no clue, but I like him!

Linking up to Kelby Sews for her QAL.


  1. I LOVE!!! this quilt. The fabric is so fun and unique, definitely qualifies as "precious". That fox is just way too cool.

  2. WHoop, whoop! This is so fun. :) A very successful quilt.

  3. What a sweet quilt and love the center fabrics!

  4. Great fabric, and a great quilt! I'll look through my granddaughter's book of fairy tales and see if I can locate your fox's story. Whoop whoop!!
