I remember starting this quilt when I first moved back to Nebraska in 2005. We had moved out of our small 2-bedroom apartment in Philadelphia and I had a bit more room, of course, here in Nebraska. So, I decided to make some quilts for the guest bedroom. After building a new house, getting married, and 2 little boys later, it is finally finished - pretty crazy how time flies!
This quilt pattern is from the book Cottage Charms by Nancy Halvorsen, Art to Heart. I actually used the same fabric as in the book. The fabric is 'Charms' also by Nancy Halvorsen from Benartex.
This a very "girly" looking quilt - it would be perfect for a little girl, but it will have to do for me instead. :) The little boys probably wouldn't like it. "Ewww....that's for girls" - I can just hear by 3 year old now!
I actually made this quilt too (which just needs quilting and it will be done too) in the same fabric - and had TONS of fat quarters left over. I honestly don't know what I was thinking when I was shopping for the fabric. I bought wayyyyy too much! (Imagine that!) So, I decided to piece the remaining fat quarters together and use them as the backing for the quilt.
These photos are all a little too dark. I took them in too much shade and they don't capture the soft pastel colors in the quilt. Need to time my photo sessions a little better. (Basically it is begging my husband to go stand outside to hold a quilt up in the air - so, I'll see what I can do!)
It's finally a finished quilt! One more checked off of my 'To Complete' list!
