Kathy K's Quilt Run Charm Quilt
The San Diego Cruisin' Quilt Run included 18 quilt shops this year. Kathy and her daughter went to each shop. The shops gave charm fabric pieces. The fabric is quite varied, as you can imagine. So Kathy decided to make a quilt of half-square triangles using a blue fabric on one side of the HST and half of the charm square on the other half. She found some light blue fabric that was perfect for the sashing and borders. Red dimples fabric in the cornerstones and here it is. The quilt is flat, square, well-pressed and perfectly pieced. I wish all my quilts came to me in this condition. LOL. She wanted an edge-to-edge and fell in love with the Circle Lord Swirlz template.
I think that the circles are a nice contrast to the straight lines in the piecing. It really just provides texture.
I used QD blend batting. The thread is PermaCore Camel on top and Signature Spiced Tea in the bobbin.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
