Sew Simply Charmed Finished


This darling pattern is the very first quilt pattern by Khristina McCarthy in Australia. I tested her adorable pattern and it is available for purchase at: http://sewprimkhris.blogspot.com/ I like how it turned out, and by the way, so do the members of my quilt guild, www.quiltersbythesea.com . I took it for show and tell last night and then handed it in to Community Relations so they could give it to one of our charities. The top picture I snapped before it was washed.

And, since I have two dogs, who think quilts are very soft to sit on when I am binding, I really HAD to wash it. So the second picture is after washing and a glimpse of the backing. I opted to quilt it with a simple stitch in the ditch and straight lines on the white. This had a variety of vintage repo fabrics and less was more in this case, don't you think?
Happy Quilting,
Marilyn

Very cute! I am always looking for ideas for charm packs, and this is a great one for that! You did a great job with the quilting. Lets the fabrics shine through.

I think I see the legs of your Schnauzer under the quilt! Must be waiting for it to hit the floor for another chance to sit on it! :)

Pat, you are set to no reply. That pattern is available on Khristina's site (re-read the blog). It is not one of Robin's patterns. I hope you get this.
