My last and final completion for the Charming Girls Quilt Club is DONE!!!
I don't recommend doing two whole quilts almost start to finish in one month...not me anyway. I pooped! and I had so many things pop into my hot little hands and head that I wanted to do instead, but I was determined to get my projects done...and I DID! Hooray!
Pixel approves of the quilt right off! I love this pattern, but if I make it again I'll do what Lynn is doing and scale down the size of the blocks by making the small inside brick smaller and working from there. It's very large quilt and will be great for hubby to snuggle with on cool nights.
The back was a bargain 50% off corner print at the LQS. It's not as hot pink as it photographs, but it's a lovely print, and I like sale backs.
All done and ready for the wash! I will say that I used the basting spray on this one thinking quicker, so hey I'll try it. H-A-T-E-D every minute of it! If you love it...I know Libby does...better for you. But OMG it takes twice as long!! I finally got done, moving it four times around the table, and realized only the front was done! Nope, not my cup of tea. Give me some lovely pins anytime. But I gave it a good try.
