Simply Charming Quilt Along

Okay, so I started the Simply Charming Quilt-Along from Kindred Quilts blog!  We each made a quilt from Tara Lynn Darr's first book, Simply Charming.  I had ordered the book, but hadn't received it and I was just chomping at the bit to get started, so I totally copied Kathy's from the picture she posted!  Sorry, but I loved it and wanted to get one done.
I used shirtings for the background and different dark and medium scraps for the squares.  I didn't have a pattern, therefore I winged it so it would fit my 12 x 14" frame and I love it!  (I used 1/8 in. seams and didn't love that!)  I have many ideas of what I want to do for the next one, just haven't narrowed it down yet.  Anyway, you can join or follow along with us here.


  1. Your mini quilt is darling! Love the shirting fabrics you used with the darker prints... wasn't it a fun quilt to make? It looks perfect it the frame!

  2. Your small quilt is adorable! I love the size...perfect for your frame!

  3. Thanks so much! I must admit, of all the quilts I have made, this may be one of my favorites!
