A charming design wall for Monday

Oh my- these blocks are like potato chips - you can't make just one! This pattern is Charming Stars from Moda Bake Shop.

The fabric is the Rooftop Garden line from Moda. I don't know who designed this line but I love it. I was unaware of this collection until I saw the charm squares at Fabric Shack but it was instant love. (There is no rhyme or reason as to the open spots I was just slapping them on the wall!)

Rich deep colors and I love the pop of hot pink and blue. And I can NOT resist a good dot and this shade of cheddar makes me drool. I have enough for this quilt and I wished I'd bought more but I know there is none left at Fabric Shack because my dear friend Stephie bought all that was left on the bolt. Smart shopper - LOL!

I don't have a border picked out yet. My first thought was one of the colorways with the patchwork square pattern but now that I have it started I'm thinking one of the less busy prints would be better. When I get the blocks together I'll take it up and audition some choices.

Okay- it is Monday- my day to spend driving in circles- hope your week is off to a good start.

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Oh, yes! I love the colors, and the cheddar just makes it so rich. I haven't seen the fabric before. I know what you mean about instant love! EAger to see it finished!!

  2. GORGEOUS! This feels very autumn to me; must be that tasty cheddar!

  3. That cheddar really pops the stars! And I love the little butterfly in that one cornerstone.

  4. What a great design! Love the fabric! Keep having FUN!

  5. Oooh so pretty and fall like! You are so incredible with all the great projects you do. I can relate to driving around in circles all day. Seems like I have more and more days like that lately. I know these years fly by so I am trying to savor as much of it as I can.

  6. Great colors and what a fun design! I really like how the pink has been mixed in the charm squares and the cheddar really makes the stars stand out. Can't wait to see it finished. Nola

  7. Love the colors - especially the pop of pink!
