Is it really the 1st of April already? It's time for the Country Charmer Quilt Along update.
I'm so pleased to show you Tina's blocks. Tina has been following my blog for several years now and I always love to hear from her. I was so happy that she joined the quilt along. Here's a few snippets from her email:
I like the way your blocks are turning out too Tina. Your quilt is going to be beautiful."I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed making the blocks! Love, love, love the layout pattern - it sure helps with all of those little pieces. I can't wait to see everyone else's blocks! I've not used checks/plaids and dots before so it has been challenging to use these fabrics instead of flowers, but I like the way the blocks are turning out."
My quilt is off the long-arm and into my arms while I work on the binding. Those of you that have been following my blog know that this is the third time I've made this quilt. So is the 3rd time a Charmer??
I made the first two quilts in greens and reds. This one is totally out of the scrap basket and was a lot of fun to make.
Every color of the rainbow is included in this quilt.
I love cross-hatching for an old fashioned look.
You can get a sampling of all the different colors I used in this picture.
My granddaughter said I "featherized" the borders. I like that word! I "featherize" quite a few of my quilts.
I'm off to the shop (In Between Stitches) this morning. Just as soon as I get home, I'll travel around the world via the Internet and look at the progress everyone has made on their Country Charmer over the past month.
Many thanks to all of you who are making my pattern. I've had so much fun watching your progress. Also, many thanks to Lesley The Cuddle Quilter for organizing the Quilt Along. Thank you to QuiltSue, from Quilt Times for making the cute little button that I keep seeing around the Internet. Remember, this is a low-key, no stress quilt along. You can jump in anytime and work at your own pace. We only post progress on the 1st of the month. Sometimes I post more often, I just can't help myself!
