Charms on point

The charm pack, Gardenvale by Jen Kingwell for Moda, was one of my winnings last year.  I thought it appropriate to make into a cute little donation quilt. Making it #11 for H2H.  The purple is Kona eggplant(I think).  

The lattice strips I cut at 1.75".  After adding some setting triangles I bordered the whole quilt with a 3" border.
 Since there were flowers in the charm pack I wanted to quilt it with a freehand allover swirl flower in a matching purple Signature thread.


A chartreuse strip was added to a purple backing to make it large enough.  There was just enough eggplant to make the binding.  Since it was a cold rainy weekend I was able to get this finished up and will be linking with Sarah for the finale linky party for H2H quilts.  How are you doing with your H2H quilts?

Stay tuned for my Modern May Island Batik project coming this week!

  8. Wow, if you had worked on that one while I was there, I might have "inadvertently" slipped that into my car for the drive home :-D I love the eggplant background!

  9. That eggplant is a beautiful color! I need to be bold and start using some non traditional background colors. Great Job!

  11. What gorgeous color combinations, Vicki...love it set on point like that, too.
    If I'm not following a set pattern, I have trouble calculating the sizes for the setting triangles. I think I'm mathematically challenged when it comes to such stuff. Nice pattern for the quilting, too.
