You guys, I’m going to be sewing all weekend with my IMQG girls. AHHH! One of my friends noted, “It’s like Christmas Eve. But better because I don’t have to deal with making anyone else happy!!!!!” Exactly.
If you’re having a bad day or need to see some amazing colors, take a look at the #charmingplusquilt and #charmingplusqal tags. Those that participated created delightful versions of the quilt. Go check it out when you have a chance.
Can I be bias for a minute? This is one of my favorite versions of this quilt so far. These are my colors. Go look in my closet, most of my clothes are in range of this palette. Best part is that I had forgotten about this scrap stash I found hiding in a box. It’s the perfect baby size and is available for a new home. It’s available on Etsy.
I pondered what to back this quilt in and remembered there was an Amy Butler gray print in my destash box. It was the perfect size and really compliments the front.
Kona Navy makes for a binding that coordinates well with all the colors. Quick and easy straight line quilting and machine binding.
At first I was scared to dig into this bundle and put it to use. However, it feels good to have finished something with the bundle and know it’s waiting for a new home. This quilt is currently available on Etsy as well.
The backing on this version was a bit tougher to select. I almost went with the golden yellow, but couldn’t find the right shade. Crimson Tate had this Follie print in stock and enough to piece a back.
In my stash was less than a fat quarter of the black and gray dots. Seriously, when I was adding the binding the last bit had just enough to make a seam. Cut that one close :).
Having made this quilt a number of times I’m digging the 3″ square size for blocks. I have some 1.5″ squares in my scraps. Wonder what they would look like in this quilt? Or mixed together with larger squares? Guess that means I will be making more in the future.
