Framed Charms

Left over charms from my Tin Sampler of Summer in the City, an awesome collection from last year from Moda, was the inspiration for this quilt. 

I quilted this on my last Sewing Sunday & finished the binding last night.  I have washed the quilt, giving it that antique look and feel.


I mixed it in with the deepest darkest chocolate brown marble I have ever seen.  Most folks think it’s black until I put black next to it & then it really shines as a warm brown.


I framed the brown charms with a fun & funky floral from the Chloe collection by P&B/Janet Broxon.  A matching jelly roll would be a great way to add a little more pattern to this quilt.  The polka dot backing & binding is also from the Chloe line.


The lap quilt is 50x66, perfect for covering your tootsies & everything above them, or having room to share the covers if snuggling on the sofa.

Love it! I really love the blue backing, it makes the blue on the front pop out. Great job, as always. :-)
