Meet Charming, my end of summer quilt...Yesterday I shared that I was practicing my free-motion quilting on this quilt. Here's one of my favorite designs that I tried out...
But, really, the top is so busy that you don't even notice the quilting design that much anyway. Who will ever realize that it was my sampler unless I tell them?
I really like the large floral backing fabric. It was purchased from Joanne's several years ago. The colors are perfect for my summer/fall project.
This polka dot binding fabric is one of those fabrics that just never seems to get used up in my stash. Maybe it multiplies at night or something! (The quilting just looks like one big mess here, doesn't it! Yes, it does.)
Though I'm not sure when the top was finished, I do remember that I made it as a leader/ender project using up 5 inch charm squares and 2.5 inch stash squares. It's a very simple design.
The colors are so happy and cheerful. It's a nice reminder of the colorful flowers of summer. Soon we'll be seeing the beautiful fall foliage here in the Midwest.
One last hurrah for summer!
