Blogger's Quilt Festival: Charmed

I had such lovely feedback on both of my quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival last time, that I thought I'd show 2 quilts this time as well.

The second quilt, I call "Charmed".


I made this for my dear friend, Megan.  She and I have been friends for 39 years.  I don't know how that's possible, since neither one of us is over 29!  

I call this "Charmed" because it's similar to the old charm quilts.

"Charm quilts are quilts that are made using a different fabric for each piece of the pattern." 
- antiquequilthistory.com

Mine isn't quite that scrappy.  Since I used a four-patch, I did duplicate each fabric - once.  Each four-patch has 2 fabrics, one pair of each fabric.  However, the fabric pairs in each four-patch are not repeated in the quilt.  I also used just one black and one white fabric for all the sashing, cornerstones, and borders.

I think I need to make her a new one though.  Last time I saw this quilt, it was well-loved and quite faded.  Hmm, I've always wanted to make a French Braid quilt, maybe I'll do a purple one for her.

Edited to add:  I don't know if Megan even knows I have a blog so no idea if she'll see this or not.  We do talk and "see" each other on FB.

Happy Stitching!

Nice easy quilt for a long time friend. I taught my long time friend to quilt so she makes her own now. Win-Win!!

Hi Stacy! I am 100% sure that Megan just loves this quilt. I have been friends with my bestie since high school, era 1976. I'm not doing the math . . . but that's a long time. I can just hear Megan squeal with delight at the possibility of a new quilt! ~smile~ Roseanne
