Sometimes you have fabric--in this case Christmas fabric. After looking on-line for ideas, I decided on this Super Simple Squares from MSQC. There are things I like about this quilt and things I'm not so crazy about. But it is done and I have a good idea where it is going.
This is a tip, for a placement step in this turtorial Jenny has given us, to make the Charm Quilt on Point. To make all your corners and side setting triangles the same, place your likefabric charms in the placement where Jenny says to cut on the 6th row charm at a diagonal up to the right top corner and on the 7th row charm diagonally down to the bottom right charm. When you continue her tutorial you will end up with all your outer half charms alike. I have the finished quilt in another post.
Need I say more! I used this last half of my older Moda layer cake on this quilt. It’s a tutorial by Jenny and ‘so easy’ is an understatement. Jenny always makes things easier but you can’t get tutorials any easier than this. The layer cake was sent to me by another quilter, as she said she hasn’t any children to sew for anymore. This is 41 inch square after quilting and will go to charity. I only put a 3 inch border, so my fabric back would fit. I also have a tip. *To have all your charms that you cut be the same, for your corner and setting triangles, pay attention for placement. I have a photo but the second photo here is usually too small to show the placement. I may have to make another post. Have a great day!-Toogie
This pattern is called "Scrappy Trails" by Carlene Westberg Designs. I used a fabric line called "Tickled Pink" by Henry Glass & Co. I am a little behind on my quilting since school started back up, so I have yet to quilt it. I just love the way the colors move around the quilt with this design.
Another baby boy tumbler quilt. I really enjoy these tumbler quilts. They are easy to piece and quick to quilt! My daughter likes the idea of finding a matching stuff animal to go along with it, so this time we found a cute black bear stuff animal. The fabric is called "Modern Lodge" by Benertex.
