Charm Pack Complete!

Binding is done! My Charm Pack quilt is finally finished! As you may or may not know, I only started quilting last November. I initially made my daughter a Turning Twenty quilt for her bed. I then found the Charm Pack quilt on Freckled Whimsy's site. So along with some others, I started this quilt. This was in late March, early April. I finally finished it, but never quilted it. Well, I finally decided that I wanted to go back and pick up some UFO's I never finished and this was first on the list.

I stitched repeated channels down the taupe color, then did some rows of three lines in between. Inside the rectangles I repeated rectangles inside and did a something similar on those elbows. The back view really shows off the quilting more.


Some close-ups from the front...





and from the back.




I did all straight line quilting on this one. It is approximately 60" x 60", a generous lap quilt size. This one actually doesn't have a specific recipient so I may be saving it up for Christmas!

Finished it Fridays!
