Between Charming Friends Quilt Along


Kelly of Cotton Charm Quilts (online quilt shop) and Charming Chatter blog along with Darlene of Quilting Daze are hosting an 8 week quilt along on Kelly's blog. This is week three of the quilt along and I was finally able to begin my quilt.

Week One was selection of our fabrics. I have developed a real obsession (yes, another one) for all fabrics by Moda's French General or Kaari Meng. I have purchased charm packs of all the French General lines. This Quilt Along seemed like the time to convert some of these charm packs into a quilt. Rural Jardin was my choice for this project.
We also needed some yardage. My choice for the backgrounds was actually some yardage from the first French General fabric line, Rouenneries.
Week 2: Cut the fabric according to the directions.



Week 3:  Construct the 4 patch blocks and the 16 patch blocks


These little blocks were so much fun to sew. Looking forward to Week 4 directions on Wednesday. Thanks, Kelly and Darlene for a fun quilting project!
