Wallhangings and miniatures are not the only sizes of Carol Hopkins quilt patterns, but she does have a nice selection of these. She designs her reproduction quilts for use with reproduction fabrics. But don’t let that stop you from experimenting! All of these quilts lend themselves to a scrappy look, so dig out your scraps and transform them.
Carol Hopkins is currently our featured designer at Quilters Warehouse, and she has a new quilt pattern called Hooker’s Hat Patch. What a nice wall hanging it would make – a perfect accent for a family room, or as the center of attention in your entryway. Tell your guests the name of the quilt and you have a conversation piece!
For a companion quilt, try Carol Hopkins Grandpap’s Cards. This quilt pattern has the same diamond and triangle theme going that makes up Hooker’s Hat Patch. Use the some of the same fabrics that you used for her new pattern, change those background squares to red, and then won’t those quilts look great hanging together?!
If you’re feeling ambitious, don’t stop now… make an entire grouping; add Michael’s Victory. This quilt pattern by Carol Hopkins would complement the other two, repeating again the diamond and triangle theme, and be a bit brighter by contrast.
For a change of pace, do you want a quick quilt, a quilt pattern with no angles? Emily’s Memories is a very simple, scrappy quilt with squares and rectangles only and measures 18″ X 18″ . The wide borders would nicely showcase large pattern fabrics. It looks great with reproduction fabrics but you might want to try using something whimsical and change the look entirely.
