Pattern – Butter Charm & Jelly
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.
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!!
