Fairy Tales Blog Hop

I must admit I was having trouble deciding what fairy tale to pick.  Then I walked out of my sewing room and found the answer to the question: Rapunzel!  This quilt was actually made when I was in college and is probably 22 years old and hangs on the wall in my basement.

I had a lot of fun picking out fancy looking fabrics to make it just perfect.

I vividly remember picking out the dark blue for the roofline so I could cut out the fancy edge.  The border fabric started it all because i thought it looked very regal.  I also found the hair fabric in my mother's stash.

I added the quilt blocks to make it look like a quilter's tower.  And found a cobblestone fabric for the entry path.  I also had fun trying to match the stripes for the bottom section of the tower.






Here's a close look at Rapunzel.  I so love the hair fabric and the roof.  I also cut out some birds from a bird fabric to add to the piece.


I am unsure why I chose to make the prince green, but I like it.


I hope you get to quilt today!
Suzy
