While I'm on vacation...

Charm pack + remnant of red solid.

After hours of pondering, I decided to make a Double wedding ring table runner with my charm pack of 1930s Buttercup. I only was able to cut enough pieces from it to make three "blocks," but I think it will be a great table runner size when finished. Finally, I'm using those templates I got on clearance so long ago!
I think the red will really make this pop. It will also make it festive for summer- my goal is to have it finished by our anniversary (which just happens to be the 4th of July!!!).

Do you have any favorite traditional quilts? Or any favorite charm pack patterns?

I'm still in Florida, but I'll be back soon!!!!

  1. Sure hope you are enjoying your vacation. Red is perfect with that charm pack! I have two traditional favorite quilts - Grandmother's Flower Garden and also the Baltimore Album - both of which I'm working on.

  2. My favorite block is the Amish Star...or Friendship Star, whichever name you use. I hand pieced one and hand quilted it when my Dad was sick. It was only my second quilt ever and it has precious memories. blessings, marlene
