I seem to have collected a ton of those Moda charm packs lately, and I was digging through old photos trying to come up with a quick way to use some of them up.
This was from a patriotic charm swap with my online group, and this quilt was donated to a Veteran's hospital in the Atlanta area. One of our members spearheaded donations for that hospital for about three years.
I think this took about four hours to put together and another three or four hours to quilt and bind. I'm thinking this sort of quickie might be make nice TV-cozy quilts for some young family members for Christmas. And bust some stash for borders and binding in the process! LOL. Or maybe find a neutral from the stash and make half square triangles .... uh oh, I think I feel a new project coming on!
Oh, oh, oh, I'm SO excited. I spent all weekend looking for a background fabric. I had in my mind what I wanted for a class in April. Three quilt shops and found nothing that would work. So I went upstairs and dug around in my stash and found the perfect fabric! But it was only a yard and I needed 1.25. So I dug some more and found another yard! I'm all set!! What fun to do shopping at home! LOL!
