Movie Theme swap

This is for the Swap Til You Drop group better known as S.T.U.D. The theme this month was to do a quilt by the name of the movie our partner gave us. Lori's favorite movie was Pride and Prejudice 2005 version. I had never seen it. At first I thought it was Sense and Sensibility which I had a thought for, but no different movie. Ok no big deal. I'll just go to Blockbuster and rent it right? Nope, didn't have it. Like not at all. It is a classic. Go to Target to buy the movie - didn't have it. Finally I go online and order it. It arrived the 20th. I have been stitching my little hands off the last few days and quilted it this morning. I am happy with the end result and I hope Lori likes it. It is framed in linen and I used crayon on the sky and grass for a tint of color. The house is in the opening scene and is the house Lizzie grew up in. A beautiful love story if you've never seen it.


  1. Awesome's a lot of stitching!!

  2. this is so cool. I love Pride and Prejudice.

  3. I love this quilt! It looks wonderful in the picture, but even more beautiful in person! I love the picture and what it represents in the movie. Home, safety, acceptance, love, joy, sorrow, laughter are all the things I see when I look at this quilt. My husband and I were watching the movie recently and both gasped when we saw the part of the movie that was the inspiration for the quilt. We both said,"That's the quilt!" It was a lot of work! The stitching is so beautiful, something I would never attempt, and very appropriate for the time period! Thanks D I love it!
