Hampton Court Quilt Along Finished Quilt Parade!

Today is the Finished Quilt Parade for the Hampton Court Quilt Along!

Fabric Selection

My main goal in making this quilt was that it be made entirely from fabric I had in my stash, which rarely happens since I am so often making cover quilts in a single fabric collection.  

My second goal was to make a single-color Hampton Court quilt with prints that had only white in them in order to show that this pattern doesn't have to be a mix of a lot of colors.  The only colorway in my stash with enough variety of prints with only white in them was black.  So black it was!  This design would be amazing in all bright blue, which was my first choice.  Pretty much any color would be great!

The backing is a black/white print I had in my stash.  It's a tiny circular designs connected together.  The binding is a black/white stripe, also from my stash.


The longarm quilting design is Crystal Ball by Karlee P, quilted in black thread.  This design adds lovely texture and dimension to the quilt.  Quilting was done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher.

About Hampton Court

The Hampton Court quilt pattern includes four sizes - Throw, Twin, Queen, and King - and is entirely strip pieced for a much quicker finish than sewing together individual bricks.  

The Hampton Court design is inspired by King Henry VIII's castle, Hampton Court, from the 1500s.  The design, with varying brick sizes, can be found in the brickwork on the exterior of the castle.

Finished Quilts in the Quilt Along!

Portia completed the Throw size in a variety of fat quarters. 

Darlene finished the Throw size using a FQ bundle of Easter fabrics with a purple background.  

Thank you to everyone who participated at any of the steps in the Quilt Along.  I understand that sometimes life gets in the way and it's difficult to keep up with the steps.  I hope at some point you finish your quilts and share them with me.  That would really make my day!
