Many moons ago I bought a charm pack from Karen at Blueberry Park.
I fell in love with the bright contrasting colours and that splash of grey that Karen has used with her fabulous designs.
I did know that I would use the charm pack (and not just sit in my stash to make it look pretty) but I would have to admit that it took me a little while to decide what I was going to make from the pack.
I do think it was in the wee early hours of the morning that I made my decision...a chevron quilt.
I used Kona Ash and Kona white with the charm pack to make up the top,
HST's seem to be my thing...I can't seem to get past them when I think of making a quilt top.
The quilt top didn't really take long to make but then it sat for a long long time...as a little girl arrived and took up a lot of my time.
This is where I stalled again. I sometimes know exactly how to quilt the top before I even start a quilt and other times I ponder. This was one of those times...I just couldn't decide if I would FMQ or just do some straight lines.
But a few months ago somehow there seemed to be a bit of time in the day to get the machine out again and it just came to me. I sat down at the machine and I began to to quilt.
I know it would not be to every one's taste but as it was a little quilt..( 24 "x 32") I thought I would try something different.
Again it sat on my sewing table for another few months as now I couldn't decide on the binding colour. I knew I wanted a solid but what colour....in the end I went for Kona Navy, and I was glad I did.
Ikea print on the back...nicely priced for backing fabric.
And there you are, finally a quilt finished. What to do with it, I do not know but happy there is another WIP finished and off my sewing table.
