Sew & Tell

October 26th, 2006

This weekend I “staffed” at an Anna Lena quilt retreat and I got a bunch of project tops finished, as well as a new project too. This first top I call Wash Tub Fun because I used the beautiful Wash Tub Prints fabric line from Andover by Karen Snyder (another shameless plug for my friend Karen). It looks like a large quilt in the photo… but it’s no bigger then two placemats side by side. No pattern… it just just evolved.

I did plan the blocks which are “Double X #3″ from Judy Hopkins’ Around the Block book. Side note… I have all three of the “Around the Block” series… Around the Block Again and Once More Around the Block as well. They are my BLOCK BIBLES!

This little lap quilt I call Charming Cherries. I love, love, love the charms by Moda, and this is my third quilt using charms. This pack of Sandy Klop’s “Cherries Jubilee” charms is my all time favorite charm pack! I got this charm pack at Anna Lena’s, but a great online source for a charms addiction is at the Fat Quarter Shop, where I’ll be getting my next charm pack… the April Cornell Sonnet Collection. I’m addicted to charms!

Anyhoo… no pattern (yet… wink, wink), just something I doodled onto graph paper (and of course seeing something my friend JJ made something similar and that inspired me to see it through!). I wanted to make something where I didn’t cut up the charms (I wanted to leave them as whole as possible). The outer border is by Moda as well, Apple Pie by Sandy Klop’s American Jane line. I love this fabric so much… I’ve purchased this fabric three times!

This little table top quilt I call “AutumnWeen”. Yup… another charm pack! This charm pack is Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I got this darling charm pack at Back Porch Fabrics in Pacific Grove, CA.

I modified a pattern from Darlene Zimmerman’s Aunt Maggie’s Quilt (for my use - and she knows I modified it). Technorati Profile

    I love charm packs too! Of course, you probably knew that. :o) That’s such a beautiful design - and it saves some time not having the squares precut like that.

    Hi LindiePindie!

    Oh how I do KNOW that when I get sent to that special ”charm pack wing” at Betty Ford… I will not be alone! ;o)

    Ooo, it makes me want some charms!! :) Darling little quilts. I’m finally getting some projects done, soon to be posted. Today, tho, I’m going shopping in Green Bay. Wish you were here. I found 3 cute quilt shops! And, being the friend I am, I would take you there! :)

  4. The fabulous Happy Zombie allegedly said:

    You’re such a good friend Cindy! I wish I was there too… but I’d rather you and the crew be here! And no doubt the sales have dropped at Center Diamond and Fabric Depot since you left for WI.

    I can’t wait to see the projects you’ve done!

  5. The fabulous CBM allegedly said:

    All your quilts are lovely, but I really love the cherries jubilee one-fabric and design. That is a great way of using and enjoying a charm pack.
