Rainbow Bright "Charmer"

Not blogging very often, but still sewing up my stash ;-0  The pleasure of scrap quilts has taken over my life (when I'm not out working in my new yard, that is...)  I'm discovering a creative outlet I never dreamed existed in my previous world of more predictable pre-planned quilts!

This small jewel is 16x48 and fits nicely as a runner on my kitchen table or hangs easily in several skinny wall spaces in my house.  Each fabric is different, even the backing and binding - my first charm quilt.  Many thanks to Mary Mashuta for the circles!  I found the idea and pattern in her book, Cotton Candy Quilts.

  2. Wow Susan, I love how you brought together the 'black and white' with the rainbow colors! Great contrast! I'm also impressed with your use of pointy machine quilting in the circles - it adds dimension for the project - very nice!
