Spring Time charm quilt
I just made this with some charms, jelly rolls and yardage i've been moving around in my sewing room. the only way to get rid of it was to make it all into a quilt!
it's for my Sister's birthday.

Lovely quilt, CC.
I just move stuff around sometimes, too. I'll take this as encouragement to sew it up rather than keep moving it!

Ohhhh, yes, very lovely. Looks lots better than folds of fabric being moved around. Your sister will be pleased, I'm sure.

some of the charms were from Wal-mart, and jelly rolls. one pack was Moda Hello Luscious (think I spelled that right). the paisley i bought. probably JoAnn's or Hobby lobby. they all do go together well. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do.

That's a sweet quilt.
Kentucky_Sunshine - I'm glad I'm not the only one who pets their charm packs!

That's gorgeous, and I recognize some of those fabrics as hanging around in my stash somewhere.
Your sister is going to love that.
