Sewing Sunday

I managed to get two quilt tops finished today. I got the Scaredy Cat charms on the Oct. 25 and decided to just sew it together. Then on Tuesday Oct. 3o I found the blue border I needed to pull every thing together. This other quilt top is from April Cornell's line called Decadent Victorian. I used a cool idea that I got from Wendy’s blog. Of course right after the picture was taken Sadie attacked the little pink foot that was hiding behind the quilt.


I have decided that I need to find the local Charms anonymous group. I really seem to have an addiction to these little 5" cuties. But they are so much fun to play with and yet make something usable for the family. Before I give up this addiction I better put together the other 12 charm packs I have left. Some of the charms I plan on making some bags with.

I have never used a charm pack, but they do sound addicting. Did you make a 9 patch and cut it in 1/2 both ways? I really love the colors in that one. Some of the scardy cat fabrics have a 1800 look to them. I like that era of fabric too.

Yes, simple 9 patch cut in half both ways. Quick and easy the tough part was mixing and matching to sew them all back together.

Love the quilts. I need to pick up some charm packs and give them a try.

I agree charm packs are addicting. I have too many....LOL. Your Halloween quilt came out wonderful and the split 9-patch is fantastic. Great quick quilts.

Hey love the charm quilts. I happen to be addicted to them as well. I have a bag I'm working on too. Lets see who gets finished first.

Ok, Mel your on. I have all the materials just need to sit and sew the bag together. You'll probably get yours done first, but I'll give it a valiant effort.
