At one point in time, Green Fairy Quilts was having this super-duper sale on charm packs. Oh, yea - it was about the time that I ran across the Charm Pack Cherry pattern. So I stocked up because I liked the way this pattern showcased the fabrics in a charm pack, and I could get pre-cut solids in charms, and what could be easier than laying out your design, stitching it up, cutting blocks in two, stitching again, and suddenly a quilt is born!
So I am working my way through my charm packs. This is what the quilt looks like with a dark background.
Here's the first quilt I did with a white background. Quite a different look, eh?
I got this little gem quilted and now just need to find some fabric for the binding and get it finished up. I decided this will be my project for May, because as simple as it sounds, getting this quilt finished this month will be a challenge. Busy-ness abounds at my house this time of year.
Yard work, yard sale, and my Day Job are all getting in my way of quilting (shakes head in dismay). But, it all must be done. Especially the Yard Sale. When we moved into our new home a year ago, we had enough storage room in the shop for all the things We Never Use But Can't Seem To Part With. The Day of Reckoning for those things is upon us now, and it's time to de-stash. A lot of the boxes are things from our kids' childhoods that I can't seem to toss out. My plan is to keep them until they get a place of their own, and then load up their cars and send all this stuff on its merry way. One day.
Quilting with a smile,
