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!
