Prints Charming

One of my fellow guild members and close friend (Deb Heath) had made a lovely quilt and I saw it on her bed at the Project Linus retreat. Don't you know I simply had to have the pattern.

And here is my version. It still needs the borders done. I love the pattern and I also love the fabric. Kansas Winter by Moda dated 2009 from my deep stash.
I am using up my stash. Finding precious groups of fabrics to use.

Also my OCD kicked in making this quilt. And it worked well I must say. Some duplicates of fabrics but not close to each other. And I counted carefully to have even numbers of each print. I also added 4 fabrics that did not belong but "went".

And of course I found some butterfly fabric. I haven't a clue as to what I am doing with this. The fabric will tell me.

I did buy some fabric. Scrabble fabric!!! My Hubby plays Scrabble with his computer all day long. And I am going to have him make up the words for his own quilt. He does not have a Minkee backed quilt yet. But the darn expensive stuff does not come in his body size and width. I could try piecing it. I have done that one time. We will see.

I like Kansas Troubles fabrics. The quilt design shows well using them.

I love playing scrabble. I am good at words & my sons refuse to play me any more. I hope hubby has fun picking out words!!

I love your quilt top. Can't wait to see what you add for borders.
I look forward to seeing your hubby's scrabble quilt.
