every year, amy's creative side hosts the blogger's quilt festival, timing it to coincide with quilt market. i consider it a consolation prize for those of us who can't attend market!
i decided to share my charm crossing quilt this time around. if you're a follower, i hope you won't mind seeing it again! after several months of living with this quilt, i'm happy to say i love it even more now than when it was first finished! the colors are so vibrant, and the quilting is just amazing. another huge thanks to ariane of callie grace quilts for knocking it out in record time for me!
i finally decided to let the kids use the quilt, and it now resides in our living room. i know i will probably regret that decision, as the toddler is sure to take a marker to it at some point. but i've always held the belief that quilts are meant to be used, so i made myself get over it.
i'm ridiculously proud of this quilt! my first "published" pattern, it appeared on moda bakeshop and you can go there to get the directions to make your own! i've had emails from people who are making it, which just made my day. i can't wait to see other versions of it! if you're making one, be sure to send me a link so i can share it!
all of the fabrics used in this throw quilt are moda bella solids, from their 2012 colors. i'm a huge moda fan, and making this quilt was a pleasure. it started with 4 charm packs and some yardage, and makes a fun scrappy quilt as well! if you collect charms like i do, you can easily make this from your stash!
