my first pattern.
it’s like my baby.
plus, i just really love this quilt.
this picture is a bit washed out.
but you can see how wonderfully it shows off the charm squares.
my friend patricia pointed out that the charm four patches can be replaced with any block.
so i asked two friends if they would make the quilt pattern up but to change the blocks.
here’s what they came up with:
lisa’s charming quilt
“I had this awesome charm pack I had been wanting to use for something. I added the cream from my stash and coordinating fabric. I picked a pieced block and added the sashing around the blocks like in the pattern. After a math error on my part and getting ahead in the directions I was able to get under way on the sashing around the blocks and borders. This was a fun and easy pattern I cant wait to quilt it and give to my niece. I will make another one maybe using a big floral or fun fabric I just cant cut up. Thank you Heather for letting me have the chance to make this up.”
you’re very welcome lisa!
i love what you came up with and appreciate your hard work.
wilma’s striking beauty
“I initially thought I would buy some “fun” large children prints, but when I got to the store, there was nothing that really grabbed me…until I saw this Andover fabric line. I had to put my math skills to the test to determine yardage (well, actually, it was converting yards to meters plus the math) to be able to fussy cut enough “flowers” from the fabric. The flowers were not large enough for a 9″ block, so I then had to calculate how much fabric was needed for a border to make up the difference. I love the completed blocks. This has been one of my favourite quilts, and I don’t think I am going to give it away! Thanks, Heather, for allowing me to be a quilt sampler!!”
thank you, wilma!!
your quilt is beautiful and almost wish i thought of it myself.
