The week has certainly flown by, but I was able to finish something...my Charm Pack Cherry quilt done in batiks! Just finished the binding last night.
This is the second quilt I've done with the Charm Pack Cherry pattern which you can find here for free. And this won't be the last one I do. They are lots of fun. Right now I'm thinking of doing one in Halloween fabrics. I have a couple of charm packs and it would be fun to fussy cut some motifs from my sizable stash of Halloweenie fabrics and add them to the mix.
Terry Finnerty of the Walking Needle quilted this one for me in a variegated thread. The panto she used is a large scale design that has a very modern vibe and it is hard to see that it is a panto and not a free motion design. Love that!
I started with two charm packs of Pat Sloan's One for You One for Me batiks and added in a couple more from my stash. I'm really loving that turquoise background too.
Since Big Dude lacks height and opposable thumbs I had to corral my youngest son into holding this quilt while I took pictures. He is an awfully good sport about it. Hmmm... I just noticed something...I was looking at the first Charm Pack Cherry quilt I did... here... and other Charm Pack Cherry quilts and this one isn't exactly like the pattern. Somehow I've rotated my blocks so every other fabric is a piece of background. Not sure how I did that but I like it! Also I extended the colored pieces into a border which isn't what the pattern calls for but I like how it makes the design area larger.
Well the weekend is upon up and I've got a few things I want to do, but mainly I want to relax. Next week is a busy one... somehow I have 3 different evening events to go to, which is way more than I usually get out...not exactly a jet setter here... LOL!
Hope your weekend is an enjoyable one!
