I finally finished this Shakespeare in the Park for my cousin. Now I get to start another one in a different colorway for my son. :)
It has not been quilted yet. It is a Christmas gift so I might send it out later to a longarmer.
WOW!! That is a beautiful quilt!
Jackie, it's a beautiful quilt. I would love to get that as a Xmas gift!!
That pattern is near the top of my 'to-try' list.
I've always loved this pattern...and in the blue/white colorway. Yours turned out great! There will one very happy recipient! (And if they aren't, I'll send you my address!)
Jackie, I love your Shakespeare! And you're going to make another one? Wow.
I made Shakespeare for my niece several years ago and I used blues, greens and purples (her fav colors).
Jackie, Yours is gorgeous! Love the blues you selected.
I can't believe you are making another one!
Wow~your gift will be the best for sure!!!
So beautiful! Every time I see this pattern I say "someday...someday..."! Very nice job!
Beautiful! That is on my "one of these days" list too.
Oh, my. I think it needs to come live at my house ....
Good eye with the colors, Jackie! A job well done!!!!
Thanks all. For those of you that have not tried it, go ahead and do it! It is really not a difficult quilt. The colors that my son and future daughter-in-law have chosen might be difficult though. They chose chocolate browns and fall colors like dark orange, reds, golds etc.
That is gorgeous and your colors are beautiful. I sleep under Shakespeare in the Park every night. Mine is scrappy salmon and cream.
I have always wanted to make this quilt too and not sure why I haven't started it yet. Yours is absolutely beautiful!
I love it! It is on my list to do also. I have been collecting blue, green, and purple batiks for it.
Thanks for the nice comments. This one is totally from my stash. I had bought the pattern a few years ago with the intent to make it. When I decided it was time, I looked to see what color I had the most fabric of. The blues won. :) It took about 6 weeks of on and off work to get it complete. It went a whole lot faster than I thought it would.
Jackie - look at these fabrics for your autumn colors - Your son and future Mrs picked a pretty combination and I am sure it will be spectacular!
Click on the sample fabric than look to the right for more.
I've been shopping too much lately :)

Jackie, your quilt is lovely! I think you did a great job with colors and I wouldn't be afraid of the one for your son, I am sure it will turn out grand also!
Blue and white quilts are always impressive but your pattern makes it more so. I am an admirer of Shakespeare in the Park. It has so much movement. Often wonder where the name comes in. Will be looking forward to see how you interpret the autumn colors.
Jackie, it is beautiful. You did a wonderful job!
Here's a link to a really spectacular version of a brown Shakespeare in the Park. The quilter incorporated an image of a huge bear. I remembered this from some show photos a few years ago. I think your quilt in fall colors will be beautiful!

WOW! Spectacular!! How do we get on your list????? :)
Love your Shakespeare!!!! I've done one in blues and I think I may do another someday maybe in reds and tan.
I just love a blue and white quilt! Beautiful!! Very lucky young man, too.
Wow Jackie, your quilt is gorgeous! Are the different blues completely random, or did you place the different shades in specific spots?
Kate, that bear quilt is really fun to see, impressive.
Maybe one day I'll try this quilt, but probably not for many more years...
The blues are random. All I did when I was cutting was try to even out how many pieces I had of each one.
Beautiful!!! I remember Donna's beauty too. I think the fall colors would make a stunning quilt.
Marsha I have heard really good things about fabric.com but I haven't ordered from them yet.
Oh, I love this! The blues and whites are so fresh and clean looking. Beautiful work.
Beatiful quilt!! Some lucky person is getting a real treasure. I've been drawn to this pattern for quite some time but have held off because it looks pretty complicated. After reading your comments maybe I'll actually give it a try.
