This is my Charm Square Sampler Quilt Top. I used a two Eat Your Fruits and Veggies by Pat Sloan charm packs and a red with white circles Lake House background from my LQS. I cut my sashing 2.5 inches and the blocks are 16 inches. Right now the top is 55 inches square--big enough for my kitchen table. I may add and additional outer border to allow for some shrinkage. Here is a link to Shannon's directions for this quilt http://moderntraditionquilts.blogspot.com
Now, I need to find a good quality backing as this will be washed all of the time.
My dishes are Fiestaware--in a rainbow of bright colors. I always make bright scrappy tablecloths to show them off.
I use quilts as tablecloths because these are absorbent, cheerful, and useful. I have made quilted placemats too, but they tend to shift around and have more spillages. Here is my Good Night Irene tablecloth quilt I made last spring. My Fiestaware looks great on it!
My birthday is coming and I am getting the Fiestaware canister set as an addition to my collection. I am trying to decide on what colors to get them in. My canisters go in my cabinet, but I may want to put them out on the counter. I like this color combination of the scarlet, tangerine, and sunflower. These colors look nicely with my granite and maple cabinets.
I finished up my Canning Season Block for the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along
and the Chicken Foot Block.
Here are all of my Farm Girl Vintage Blocks so far. I am making them from my scrap bins and love how they are coming together.
The LQS is having a sale, so maybe I can find a backing for my Charm Square Sampler...
