Well this quilt was no where on my list of things I should do, but I couldn't resist the siren call of the Charm Pack Cherry pattern. You can see the free pattern here.
Now my version is larger because for some reason I had 3 charm packs of this older collection from Cosmo Cricket called Circa 1934.
This is the fabric...
and this is my quilt...
I used a Basic Grey Grunge fabric instead of another set of charm squares. I LOVE the Grunge collection and this one is a tomato-y red with splotches of olive and tan.
My youngest son has taken a shine to this quilt which is unusual for him, and I am happy to make it for his room. These are the colors in his attic studio. He likes it because the fabrics aren't girly. I was pleased to find that one of the charm squares included a message that I don't think he saw but I am so happy to include in this quilt. Do you see it?
The typewriter has a word balloon that says "I Love You" -- perfect!
Well we didn't get the foot of snow that they predicted but we did get enough for it to me a messy morning commute. I didn't have to go out but my oldest son had to get downtown for work. Ugh... we are all soooooo tired of winter. I hope this is the last gasp.
