I have been remiss in posting for the past few weeks. It seems getting ready for vacation and then the vacation itself pulled my attention elsewhere.
I should have been very excited to show you that over the Labor Day holiday I actually made something! It’s not quilted yet (as are so many of my UFOs) but I was so relieved to get it this far.
This was an impulse buy at an out-of-town quilt shop I was investigating. They had a sample on the wall which I really loved, so I bought the pattern and the Moda charm pack that went with it. But it sat on my table for more than a year, I think, and I was getting darn tired of looking at it. I was afraid to put it away untouched for fear (well-deserved) that I would never see it again.
The pattern is from the Little Charmers collection by Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka’s Treasures.
These patterns are designed specifically for 5″ charm squares and I made the one on the left, called “Mango Tango.”
It shouldn’t take me very long to quilt it and finish it, so long as I can get started. LOL
