4th Quarter Challenge – A Blog Reader Shares

This year we’ve had a great time using pre-cuts with a different challenge each quarter. The 4th Quarter Challenge is using the packages of 5″ charm squares we’ve purchased and hoarded.

Karla sent several pictures of runners she made for her washer and dryer. I asked her about the benefit of placing quilts on her appliances. She explained that it is convenient to store her detergent and fabric softeners on top of her front loading machines instead of in the high cabinets on the wall above. When the runners become dusty or detergent spattered, Karla simply tosses them into the washing machine.


The fabrics are Basic Mixologie by Studio M. Karla began with 2 charm packs and used some of the leftovers to make a Chunky Dresden color wheel. The center is machine embroidered. Karla blogs at mysewfulretirement.com. Look at her Nov. 6 post to read more about her pre-cut projects.

Thanks for sharing your projects with us, Karla!

What about you? Are you making some holiday gifts with charm squares? Please send pictures of your projects to aby.quilts@gmail.com.
