“Charmville” QAL #9

7 03 2014


We are nearing the end of our Quilt A-Long for “Charmville,” my wall quilt that appeared in the Feb/Mar 2014 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. How is your quilt top coming along?

Please send me a digital picture of your quilt (or at least the quilt top, if you are not quite finished). My email address: aby dot quilts at gmail dot com. I need your picture by 10 March 2014.

Remember . . . there will viewers’ choice voting by readers of this blog. And there will be prizes! The top prize is $50 credit toward my longarm machine quilting service.

Here’s a small wall quilt made from two houses, the sample tree blocks, and the schoolhouse block (see “Charmville”QAL #5). Similarly, feel free to modify the design you submit for viewers’ choice voting.

Leave a comment below to say where you would hang your “Charmville” quilt or who you would give it to. For example, the Quarterly Quilters of Alexandria, Va. plan to make larger house blocks with 2 1/2″ squares. Nine blocks will make a nice sized child’s quilt for a charitable organization in their community.

Happy sewing this weekend!
