Simply Charming Fun

A big Thank You! to Darlene and Kathy for challenging us to do the quilts from Tara Lyn Darr's book Simply Charming...I had so much fun today...cut it and sewed it and now it's ready for the quilter...my sweet quilter is going to cross hatch it for me on her regular sewing machine because it's little and I don't machine quilt even a little bit...I'm so excited...she spoils me so...thank you!  Thank you!  This is Teresa's Treasure but I hopped out of the box and used a Christmas charm pack (Blitzen) instead of the pink and brown that was in the book...I have a spot that needed a little Christmas quilt and this sure fit the bill.


Before I got started on this today I spent a little time cleaning up my messy sewing room and as I was putting stuff away I found some things that need a new home...check out my other blog, Brown Quilts and MORE,  if you're interested in some oldies.  Have fun!  UPDATE:  Everything sold...I'll have to do some more cleaning.  Thank you everyone!

My Fat Quarter Shop Designer BOM block was in today's mail...that's what I'll be doing this evening...I'll be in the sewing room if you need me!

Ooh, love it, Carol. I "almost" picked this one out this month and then at the last minute found a FQ bundle that I cut for TWO projects in the book. You'll see the sneak peak.

Very cute. I think I will end up making this pattern at some point during the year. I do like it!

Such a sweet little Christmas quilt---dang it, Carol, I always show up late at your dances---maybe you could hold a private sale with me. ;D

The Blitzen fabric is such a fun print! How clever to make a Simply Charming mini using it... you'll be ready come December!
