Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great holiday; I will admit I am sad that it's already time to get back to routine.
I discovered a forgotten charm square pack that I had bought last Christmas. I wasn't sure what to make with it but than I saw the Moda Love Quilts(the link has directions for the quilt using layer cakes, charm packs or mini charms) and knew it was perfect.
The fabric is In From the Cold and is really cute. I kept the quilting simple; simpler than I had originally planned, and just water-stitched all the background pieces. The solid pieces really puff now and I am still debating quilting those as well.
I had a Kona solid that matched the green fabrics and it worked perfectly as the binding.
And because I had a mini charm pack, I made another one.
This one I put together a little differently and I love how you they look so different and yet it is the same pattern. Think I'll have to get a layer cake and make a bigger one!
3 love it too:
You know I love these already. I have a layer cake that I bought to make the large version. I just ran out of my solid I planned on using. It's on my to do list for the first half of 2015.
Very pretty, and Happy New Year to you!
I think they're great. So after making the next size up with a layer cake, will you carry on and make them bigger and bigger by using FQ's then yards, etc?
