For 2011 I resolve NOT to make any new resolutions! I will however, try to sew more, hang with my kids more, and stress less.
Here are some pictures of a couple of quilts I finished recently using charm squares, embellished with some alphabet applique.
I just let the letters lie casually on each fabric square so I didn’t have to be too precise on placement.
I used my favorite moon stencil for the border – check out earlier posts for a closeup look using the same quilt design.
I used one Moda Charm Pack in girl colors for this cute quilt:
Just like the blue quilt above, I enlarged a computer font and made my own stencils for the lettering, placing them haphazardly on the background charms to give it a more whimsical look.
This quilt measures about 32″ x 36″ – perfect for a snuggly baby on the go!
My local quilting guild has encouraged its members to complete 12 projects this year – one for every month. These won’t count for 2011 but just looking at them is getting me excited to start my new projects. If I complete my goal, I’ll be rewarded with a gift certificate to a local quilt shop.
Hey – even though I run my own quilt store, it’s still fun to go shopping somewhere else!
