Charm Quilt in Progress!

Sunday, September 29, 2013

It's not even 1/4 of the way done and will be king size when finished. I really want a quilt we can use on our bed. It's nine patches of similar colors. What makes it a charm quilt is that every patch is a different fabric, no repeats. Okay one or two repeat if I really really loved the fabric! But it is my quilt, I make the rules :) Each square is 3 x 3. It's also called a begging quilt because you beg fabric from friends, family and strangers. There will 1764 small squares making up 180 nine patches (if I did the math right, which is always a big if...)

    That is awesome!! And quite an undertaking at a king size!! How will you quilt it when its done? I have a lot of 6" blocks you very welcome to. We have a 6" block exchange at a local bee I go to once a month. I have no use for them and would love to send them to you. Please send me an email; if you are interested in them.

Good Luck

    Nice way to make a scrappy quilt. You can email me too if you'd like some fabric from my resource center.

    oh I would love a couple of square from spark friends! Part of the charm of the quilt is remembering where the fabric came from :)

    the seams are straight? this is just nine patches laid out, they aren't sewn together yet.

    Beautiful!! I love it! I'm amazed you can piece it without going "straight" seams.
You are very talented!

    OMG - it's so beautiful, and I can just imagine how it will look when you finish it and get it quilted.

I quilt and sew, too. It's a wonderful creative outlet and hobby. I love the quilt pix as the background to your Sparkpage.

Happy Quilting!
