Pattern – Butter Charm & Jelly
Legacy Patterns

Quilt Pattern – Deb’s Feathers

This quilt was made using “Serenity” charm packs from Keepsake Quilting ™ and a “Serenity Scrap Bag” of 16 quarter yard cuts.

I absolutely loved the colors – Taupes – Tans – Browns – Neutrals – very “Serene”.


The top seemed to go together rather quickly.  The charms made four-patches and the quarter yard cuts made the extra strips surrounding the blocks.  The darker brown used for the inner border seemed to “contain” the variety of fabrics – and the outer border was fabric left over from an Anniversary Quilt that I had made a few years ago for my sister-in-law and her husband – I love that fabric!



The back just didn’t want to cooperate.  It kept coming up short by about an inch.  I used the extra strip sets and ”scrappy patched” it.  I love the way it finally worked out – but it was a royal pain.  I had two one-way prints that I wanted to use up – the rust with wheat thingys on it and the brown with the little white doves.  I did manage to use up most of those two fabrics – only a little left for the scrap bins.  Yay!!

  1. Beautiful quilt and I love the subtle colors. I just won Quilt Album and it will be fun to go through my quilts and keep a history of them.

  2. Very pretty quilt! Your quilter did a spectacular job, too. And keeping a quilt journal - something maybe I should consider doing.... I do take pictures - does that count :-)

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
