Today, the first day of the month is Country Charmer Quilt Along update day. I'm so anxious to go over to Lesley's and check out Mr. Linky at the bottom of her Country Charmer post. Patterns have been mailed all over the world! From Germany to Australia to Canada, people are making their version of Country Charmer.
My friend Karen, from Los Banos, California is making her quilt in these yummy, coffee colors. It is going to look so rich and creamy when she's done. Just look at her checks and plaids!
My email friend and blog follower Tina from Nevada, is going all out for a Christmas Country Charmer. Her bright reds and greens make her blocks very cheerful. Gotta love her plaid and her fussy cut centers! Tina said she was having trouble with her 1/4" seams.....they look perfect to me Tina.
I love the way she fussy cut her center. It's perfection when it comes to Chris' piecing!
Now we get to my almost finished quilt top.....my quilt without borders. My melting pot of color all came together in the end. Did you have doubts??? There were times when I did.....but I persevered with my forays through my fabrics. Every block is unique and just about every color of the rainbow is represented. The black and tan sashing and 9-patch pull it all together.
You can go over to FLICKR and see lots of posted Country Charmer blocks. Thank you Lesley for setting that up for us. Many thanks to Lesley also for taking charge, and leading the Quilt Along.
Thank you all for participating in the Country Charmer Quilt Along. I've met the nicest people over the past couple of months that have jumped on board. It's never too late to join in this low-key no stress Quilt Along. The pattern is available HERE. Keep those comments, emails and pictures coming. You've all done wonders with the pattern and I'm so proud of all of you!!
