Charms in Patchwork

A few months ago I had a strong desire to make some simple quilts and spent a weekend buried in little squares. Lots of little squares. But it was totally fun, and totally worth it.

Here are three of the completed quilts, the last one is still in the works. 


This sweet quilt above is crafted from Melody Miller's Social line along with white Kona cotton, and it's backed with a soft, creamy Minky dot. It was the first time I'd used a Ruby Star Society fabric and I was impressed - they are very soft, but still super vibrant.

The girly quilt is available in the Jude Harbor shop or on Etsy.


A charm pack of batiks? Yes, please! These jewel tones were just amazing, I felt like I'd been whisked away to a tropical island somewhere. These are Moda's Longitude Batiks by Kate Spain and I really loved how modern the batiks designs were. This one was backed with a blue on blue dot that complemented the colors in the front of the quilt.

Not surprisingly, this quilt sold immediately (funding more fabric purchases!).


Day in Paris by Brigitte Heitland was the base for this sweet, romantic quilt. I just love the colors of this one and the cool patterns, and the gold scattered throughout ... and the way the Minky backing fabric matches is just dreamy. Here's another image of this one so you can see the decadent fabrics better. This one is also available at Jude Harbor or Etsy.

P.S. - Making a bunch of quilts at once is great except that while I've been finishing them I've been thinking of new quilts and setting aside fabrics for them. I have five quilts ready to be started ... pretty good problem to have. :)
