Charlie Quilt...I'm loving it!

decorative hand stitching in green & cream thread
quilt laid out on the outdoor table on our front deck.


Dropped this quilt off to the gorgeous local store & gallery Mooch Inside on Saturday morning & I couldn't wait to show it off to the lovely ladies there. I think out of all the cot quilts I have made to date,this one is definitely my favourite. I love the bright sunny colours & the Japanese red riding hood print. Thanks to my neighbour & friend Charles for gifting me his favourite old shirt so I could chop it up into 6"& 6" squares. It is the most beautiful orange sateen weave cotton with white Asian style chrysanthemums printed....this makes the quilt even more special as I love it when things have a past life.

Wow! That is one of the most gorgeous quilts I've seen. Is it going to the shop to be sold or tobe quilted? X

It's beautiful. I haven't the patience for quilting. I really admire those who have that patience though.

Utterly perfect quilt. You are my quilting heroine. Looks like you used, what, about 6 different fabrics in there? Such an eclectic mix and yet they work perfectly. I want to grow up to quilt just like you :)
