I found a blog friend in Tasmania, Australia and we traded some fabric. Below is some of what received from Leanna in exchange for some fabric from me. I plan to use the charm squares in a tumbler charm quilt. It still amazes me that we find friends on the other side of the world by blogging. It is so fun!Here are some of the other charm squares I have collected for the tumbler charm quilt. I will be using mostly reproduction fabrics - or fabrics that can pass for reproduction types, Tee Hee. I will be hand piecing it, so needless to say, this will be a long term project. No deadline here!
Here is one of the finished doll quilts that I made last week. I sold one to a friend at work and she was real happy with it. I hope to sell this one (if not, I will give it away). The pillow is kind of strange (long & skinny), but I had some blocks left over and this is how it turned out.
I have been wanting a Christmas quilt, so I decided to use these charm squares to make a lap quilt for us. It's a really fast project.
I'm kind of addicted to charm squares!
I found another charm pack of Christmas fabrics and I think I will make this one with alternating fabrics, such as the ones I laid out below. We'll see if I get this finished in time to give as a gift.
The LQS is having a sale - 40% off everything in the store!!! I went there yesterday and plan to go back today. The store will be changing hands the first of the year, so the owner is trying to clear out the inventory. I love it!!!
