Back behind the Wheel! Sewing....

Let's get started!!

I saw this pattern some time ago, where you used charm pacs.

Well I had two charm pacs and started sewing.

Once you sew three together, sew three more, and three more you end up with this.

Then you sew them to make one large square. 13/12 " then you cut down the middle. make sure it is perfect or your square will be off. (done that)

Next you turn your block and cut again.Get the picture.

Well after putting together all my charms I did not have enough to complete my quilt.
So to my stash I go and find similar colours to add. Cut them into 5" charms , press them and then start sewing and cutting and sewing. This quilt when finished is going to a little sweetie.

My grandaughter Vanessa. She turns three this April.

She is now in her own big bed and this quilt comes just in time.

Her room is in deep pink so I believe that my colours will just look fabulous.

We had some mdf board left from our demolition, so I asked dh to please make me a design wall.

Our local fabric store is closing and I purchased at a steal enough flannel to cover this 6'x3' design wall.

Oh it feels good to get back behind the sewing wheel.

Now I'm off to watch my grandaughter Adriana sing at our towns music festival.

Have a great sewing day!!



  1. It's called a "disappearing 9 patch". I love the colors. I think your granddaughter will love it.

  2. I loike blocks like these. Fantastic idea for the design wall. So far things are looking pretty good. Ncie colours. I hope Adriana's performance was enjoyable. Ann :-)

  3. don't you just love your design wall? It's so nice to be able to move it around and then put it away when you're not using it. Everything looks great!
