So I finished the 6th and last Project Quilting Challenge of this season:
Isn't it Charming?
The challenge was to use 20 or more 5"charm squares only on the front of the project. I went straight to my Denyse schmidt stash of charm squares. I have a foot tall stack from the many swaps I have done. I thought I might make four patches and piece a bag I could use to hold my quilt pin collection.
However time and tiredness just left me no time this week. So I decided to make a little mini quilt to use as a topper on my 185k sewing machine cabinet. I love making these in different sizes to decorate with.
title: Charming Patchwork
size: 16"x 20"
location: Lewisville, NC
inspiration: I love charm squares and can honestly say Im a bit of an adict. I have an old cd shelf full from swaps I have done. I pulled out some from my favorite designer Denyse Schmidt. I wanted to make scrappy four patches using Lori Holt's method. Then decided I wanted a topper for my vintage sewing machine cabinet. The backing and binding are also DS prints. Her fabrics always make me happy and I love decorating with patchwork.
quilted: I straightline quilted it on my Baby Lock Sofia.
