Hopscotch in Ruby

I'm really sorry if you're all sick of the sight of my Hopscotch quilt, but I have to show it off because it's now finished and just off the washing line.

I love it! I have never made a quilt that makes my heart flutter, but this one does! I wasn't sure if I loved the Ruby line when I first saw it, but I got a jelly roll on sale and decided to give it a go in Katy's Swooning on a Hop Along QAL.

I'm so glad I did. I just love it. I loved making it, and I'm going to find it very hard to give this one away because it's sadly not for me. It's a gift for someone special. I'm going to keep it for a few weeks though and just enjoy looking at it :)

For those interested the pattern is Hopscotch by Camille Roskelley
I used a Ruby Jelly Roll, also by Camille for Moda
I used an Ivory quilting cotton, and Kona Ruby for the centre triangles and diamonds and the binding is Kona Ruby
Backing is a print from Camille's older line Bliss.

Okay, No more pictures of this quilt. Promise!
But I am going to make a version for myself :)
