It's my first finish for the First Quarter of the 2018 Finish Along (you can find my original list here. I managed to finish the quilt as many quilting friends were enjoying themselves at Quilt Con in Pasadena. This was fitting as this simple little quilt had it's origins at Quilt Con, last year in Savannah.
My friend Laura from the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild won this pack of charm squares and she felt she wouldn't use them as they weren't her style. I offered to take them to make a donation quilt. It only took me a whole year to get it finished.
I had a lot of fun with the quilting which is done with the walking foot. I quilted intersecting straight lines through the charms creating a starry look. I picked up this method of quilting at the Jacquie Gering workshop I went to last summer. I then quilted straight lines in the rest of the quilt. I had a lot of fun changing the direction of the quilting and figured out what I wanted to do with the quilting as I went.
