Finish! "Little Peeks"

This quilt is now for sale in my Etsy shop!

Isn't amazing what you can do with ONE charm pack? This is what became of the Basic Grey charm pack I got back in August; it's about 65X75 inches, I'd call that a twin quilt. I'm calling the block in this a modified cathedral window. Because of the folded edge on the white triangles, each little charm square looks as if the white background has been peeled back to reveal it underneath.

The backing is a sheet I picked up somewhere that really pulls out the yellow on the front. I wanted to make this pattern so that the triangles were denser and one corner and grew fewer toward the opposite corner, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. There are a few changes I would make if I did it again, though, starting with removing any charm squares that basically match my background fabric.

The quilting in this was simple straight lines, except for the outer border. As you can (hopefully) see in this picture, I used a large curvy shape the mimics the curves in the border fabric.

I'm not sure who this quilt is going to, yet. I may just hang on to it for a while.

  1. I love the layout. I have only been quilting a year, so your ideas for 1 charm pack are awesome! I love fabric and I love to make quilts, but I'm not very creative...yet :) Thanks for the inspiration!
