Charlotte’s pick

When my granddaughter, Charlotte was 3, her Daddy and Mommy discovered Charley was going to have a sibling.  Our Miss Charlotte decided she needed Nana to make her a quilt for her big girl bed in their new house.  With her Mom’s help, she found a pattern she liked and then picked her fabrics out.  Our girl definitely knows her mind!  It was a labor of love and look how great it looks in her new room.  Most of the fabrics came from my stash….a blend of Northcott, Moda Fabrics, and some unknowns!  I used a Warm and Naturals Bright White batting since the quilt will be laundered often.  Did it all on my Janome domestic.  Quilting was a simple stitch in the ditch job.

Another one done!

Finally one for me to keep!  I have been hoarding this fabric ever since Kathleen bought some and showed it to me.  I had to make the trip to Kathy’s Quilt Shop in Prince George, BC to get the teal and brown floral, but then lucked out and found the extra fabrics to coordinate with the gorgeous floral.  There is something so luxurious about the combination of teal, chocolate brown and gold that makes it irritable! I had to add in the auberfrine border for a contrast and made a mistake in the choice of but nding fabric.  I had a lovely brown fabric to use for the backing.  Thimbleberries provided the inspiration in one of the many books they have in print.
