Get a Clue Nancy Drew Quilt

This quilt was my final finish of 2015. I cut, pieced, and had this thing sent for quilting in just under a month! The fabric I used is a Layer Cake of Get a Clue Nancy Drew for Moda Fabrics. It is out of print and I am so glad that I snatched this up on Ebay when I did!  

My mom has been collecting Nancy Drew books for years, so I just had to make her a quilt with this fabric. This quilt was my Mom's Christmas gift this year, and she had no idea that she was going to be getting it! I love surprises! 
The pattern is Framed by Camille Roskelley, it can be found in her book Simply Retro. I adore all of the patterns in that book, and one of my 2016 goals is to make every quilt in it.

The quilting on this was done by Sarah at Crinklelove. Her turnaround time is FAST! I sent this quilt to her the week after Thanksgiving, and it was back to me by December 21st! I had her quilt it in an all over Books design, and I think it turned out just perfect for this quilt.
One of the things I love most about quilting is giving them to the people that I love most! So far I have made 2 quilts for my Dad, 1 for my Mom, 1 for my Sister, and 1 for my Nephew. I still have a bunch on my to-do list so that everyone can have one someday! 
Last but not least is a video of my mom opening her quilt on Christmas! I loved seeing the look on her face when she saw what it was, and of course William helping her open it.


  1. love your quilt and the bookish quilting is amazing.

  2. This was a huge surprise for me and I absolutely love this quilt! I am a bragging mom now, but Hilary does the most beautiful work! I love the quilt but nowhere near as much as I love my daughter! Thank you so much for being my friend too!

  3. Sorry Hils, I just realized you were logged into my computer and I commented as you! I actually figured out how to change to my own name so there is hope for me yet!

  4. This is a great quilt. Good call on the quilting.
