Oh so Charming!

The top is done! I just love it.
This has been a lot of fun.

I did the corner blocks for the borders a little differently than the directions. When I started to play with the borders, I decided to put the strips in a structured colorway. Once I did that, I decided that I wanted something other than the 9 patch for the corners. I played with having the corners just be more straight patches, or maybe be strips in a wedge radiating out from the inner corner... so I went with a variation of both of those. Keeping to the colorway, I cut 4 cuts, pieced them and cut the square on an angle.
Easier than the wedge, a little more fun than just more strips.

So I ended up with a pink corner, a peach corner, a green one and a blue one. fun!

Happy quilting


  1. I love your structured colorway border. It really adds movement to the quilt. Great idea for the corners!

  2. Oh it's so pretty! And, I love what you did with the corner blocks! Very nice job!

  3. This is really striking with the pastels and the navy BG. Changes the look altogether. Love it.
