I've finished up the first of my projects for the second quarter of The Littlest Thistle's 2014 Finish Along. Go, me!
Here it is, my Charm Pack Cherry Quilt.
I had the top pieced and was able to get it quilted up and bound. I used a larger-scale pantograph that had soft geometric curves. I think it worked well with these Moda fabrics, A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrasky.
I really debated about whether or not to keep this one. I really, really like it. Something about the brightness reminds me of summer, and heaven knows we don't have enough summer where I live.
But in the end, I think I will list it in my Etsy shop, Mountain Quiltworks. I do like the backing fabric, which I also used to bind it.
I've already got another Charm Pack
Cherry quilt cut out and ready to piece. This time I'm using Moda's
Barcelona charm packs and I splurged and bought precut black Kona charms
so the project is clipping right along. It's like night and day with the background fabrics. It will be interesting to compare and see which one I like best.
What did you work on this weekend?
Remember to quilt with a smile,
