I can't help myself. I walk through fabric stores and am magnetically attracted to lovely, neat pre-cut fabrics. Jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs all seem like such easy additions to the stash. But sometimes I have a hard time using them. For example, charm packs. One little charm pack, well, just doesn't cover much space.
So I had this little charm pack of S'More Love that I had purchased thinking it would be perfect for a little lap quilt for the porch at our lake house. But how to make it large enough to cover a lap?
I was inspired by this quilt. After making a few hourglass blocks and using up essentially all the charms, I had this.
After much debate with myself, I added a couple of borders to increase the size up to 49" by 49," a size that should be useful around the knees on a chilly morning.
And I have the PERFECT backing fabric for this...can't wait to get this one quilted and put to use!
I also put together a quilt top as part of the Boston Modern Quilt Guild's Quilt for Boston project. I am a new member of the guild and wanted to do a little something to contribute as they near the completion of this amazing project.
Stay tuned for some quilting updates! Yay!
Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday party!
