Completed Charmed Prints QAL Quilts

Dec 13, 2011
Pin It A Charmed Prints QAL finish!  I hope you have enjoyed the Charmed Prints Quilt Along.... today is the official day to show off your finish (or close-to-finish if you have a quilt top!).  I enjoyed putting this quilt along together and watching each person's take on the design pop up in the flickr group.  Thank you to everyone who is participating!  Since this is such a crazy time of year, I'm going to leave the linky open for quite a while - if you end up finishing your quilt after the new year, I'd still really love to see it.  In my opinion, the best thing about this QAL was the ability to customize it.  Each person made their version completely unique.

Here's my finish:
Is that orange calling you?  It didn't start out as an orange quilt in my mind, but I love how the orange accents in the prints are picked up.  I think I have a new found love for gingham.

The Fussy Cut Feature Blocks:

STAR


GREEK CROSS


DIAMOND


PINWHEEL

If  you look closely, you can see I had a rotary cutting misfire here on my last pinwheel.  I couldn't bear to omit that little dear, so I did my best to salvage the block.  By far, the one with the most problems... but oh well, like my kids will notice?

The Flange:  This was a fun little skill to add to my back pocket.  When used in certain situations, I think it gives just a little needed pop.

  4. I love how this quilt turned out. Thanks for sharing your mistake, too. So often I look at all of the beautiful quilts online and they look absolutely perfect (and I'm sure many of them are). It's nice, though, to see that everyone makes mistakes, even skilled quilters like you :)

  5. This looks so great. I am going to pin it for future reference, so if I ever get to my Spoonflower and Japanese charm swap quilt I will have an inspiration.
