Vintage Charm - HQM Quilt 12

  It is Week 12 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and I am so excited about this finish!!  I spent the day up the mountain, so coming home to this quilt in all it's Nature's Goodness waiting to be pictured just brought me right up the mountain again.  So pretty.   This is Vintage Charm and I just love it!!! 

Isn't it just so pretty!!!  It just reminds me of walks along a crystal spring.   I used a Fat Quarter Bundle of Harvest Road by Lella Boutique.  I just love Vanessa's fabrics!!!    And the Vintage Charm Pattern is by Sherri McConnell and a fun one to make for sure!!  I sized up the blocks and added more blocks to make this a good picnic size quilt.


I started this Vintage Charm quilt back in January of 2020, when I actually got to take a class from Sherri  who had come to our Cedar Quilt Retreat to teach.  It was such a fun class to take.  I finished the quilt top soon after, but then it has been sitting in the to be quilted pile for longer than I care to admit ;)   But now, I am so happy to have it all done!!! 

I actually quilted this yesterday, but am just now getting to post about it.   I quilted an all over echoed paisley design.  I think it was a perfect match for the vintage, nature, feel of the quilt.   And believe it or not, I didn't use 402 thread, I used 403, its next shade friend.   It works for cream backgrounds the way 402 works for white ;)    


And I am  super excited to have finished up as it will now be a perfect Thank You gift for a wonderful friend who is helping me out with a big favor up the mountain :)  Cause if your going to help with camping stuff, you should get an all Nature quilt, right!!!  I just love giving a thank you with quilty hug!!! 


And that is Quilt #12 - Flower Market ;)  12 Down and only 14 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   So close to half way!!!!  



And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Pin It!
