Pattern:  Charming by Anka’s Treasures
Size: 26″ x 32″    
Methods of Construction:  Machine Applique, Machine Quilting.
Fabrics used:  various scrap fabrics

Completed July 2009

This little quilt was made with scrap fabrics from my stash.  The pattern was offered for free on a blog.  I thought it was a very darling quilt.  I had always loved the look of applique, but was too scared to try it.  For this quilt I tried machine applique.  This quilt was also some of my first free-motion machine quilting.

This quilt represents a growth of skills.  Some of these skills I would have never tried without the inspiration of others.  I also did something with this quilt I had never done before; I made it entirely out of scraps.

I have had this quilt hanging in my living room since it was completed several years ago.  I had not planned on it hanging in the show (the reason it is not in the program), but I had accidentally included it in with my quilts that I brought to the show to hang.  Wendy, the chair of the show, said it should be in there, so it is!
