Charming Patchwork

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.

I think this is just wonderful! The colors, fabric and quilting all work together so well to make this look fantastic!

And - good luck with your Butterfly High block! I'm heading over to vote no!

Gotta love the DS patchwork ;-)

The butterfly block is unique and very creative. It could bring about quite a few different looks.

Cute topper! My project changed from a quilt to a runner this week. Sometimes it just goes that way... but it's still a finish so that counts. :)
