Good day everyone! Thanks ever so much for stopping by.
It’s such a treat to have my quilt, Charm & Whimsy featured on page 22 in Quilter’s Newsletter, Best Fat Quarter Quilts magazine. It’s wonderful to work with editor, Mary Kate Karr-Petras and editorial assistant Caitlin Dickey. These ladies rock!
As is typical of me these days, my quilt was inspired by my granddaughter, Harlow. She loves to fly kites and walk with her umbrella in the rain and pick flowers (even when she’s not supposed to!). Like most 4 year olds, she loves eating a lollipop and opening gifts. The embroidered “H” on the quilt is the first initial in her name and the pinwheels on the bottom represent her love of all things that twirl.
The quilt is super easy to make. The colours of teal and purple, with a hint of pink just dance off the white background and have become my favorite colour scheme. I think the teal is especially lovely; it’s called Mooshka by Julie Paschkis. I bought yards of it!
The sun was shining so hard yesterday, I wanted to take advantage of the light and took some photos of my quilt. The snow didn’t dampen my spirits.
