    "Little Charmer II" Lap Quilt using "Allure" charms

    I finished up this quilt moments ago. I saw a table runner posted on the Tamarack Shack blog & decided to try the pattern just from seeing the pic. It's an Anka's Treasures pattern. I used 2 charm packs of "Allure" by Moda. It was the DD some time back; I had bought 2 packs. To extend the size, I used some solids from a charm pack called "Shades" by Riley Blake. For the stars I used Bella Solids "Snow" yardage. It's basically a 9-Patch with 4 of the squares snowballed, which forms the star. I chose no border so I could use WOF for the backing without piecing. I just barely had 1-1.5" on the sides, but it was enough. I used yardage from my stash. Hobbs 80/20 batting, which is what I use all the time. For quilting thread, I used Superior's King Tut "Basket" for the top and Signature's "Parchment" for the back. The quilt measures 39.5" x 53". This will be a gift for a friend. Thanks for taking a look.Little Charmer II - Aug. 2016 001.jpgLittle Charmer II - Aug. 2016 002.jpgLittle Charmer II - Aug. 2016 003.jpgLittle Charmer II - Aug. 2016 004.jpgLittle Charmer II - Aug. 2016 005.jpgLittle Charmer II - Aug. 2016 006.jpg

    Lovely! I'm tired of the heat and looking forward to autumn. Your table runner is a nice reminder of my favorite season! Thanks for sharing.

                        I LOVE it! I am partial to fall colors. I made my first star quilt top a little while ago, and I want to make another one. I am seriously considering using your pattern, as it is so pretty.

                            Beautiful! I especially admire the quilting. That's a motif I was going to use in a recent baby quilt, but I wasn't as confident in my ability to do it as I was with swirls. You inspire me to try again!

                              Everything is perfect on this quilt. And thanks for giving the details, I want to try the Hobbs 80/20 batting . I really like your FMQ too.
