Hi all,

The Charm Bracelet Quilt is finished – yay! Unless you count the label, I just can’t decide what to write on it.

The front! I really turned out great, I was a bit dubious about the colours because they are not normally what I go for but they look fantastic with the Origins fabric.

The back! I love the look of a pieced back.

Congratulations! It looks great! I can't remember if you quilted it by hand or machine (and I can't tell by the photo). I also love your new project.

I love your top quilt. I think that design would work especially well showcasing old sheeting fabrics.

Jessica said...

My comment dissapeared, I'll try again. Congratulations on a fabulous finish, it's always exciting. I love the pieced back, I wish I wasn't too lazy to do them myself. Cheeky little Jack Russell.

Hi Jessica! I love your Origins quilt. I have a charm pack or 2 of origins and a little yardage and have been wondering what to do with it. I think I'm inspired now. You know, it's true what they say - "So much fabric, so little time!"

Anyway, lovely quilt. Thanks for the inspiration. Can't wait to see your table runners finished.
