CHARISMATIC Leftovers 45″x 45″
When I made the original CHARISMATIC quilt, I was working with a lovely bundle of 20 fat quarters of Amy Butler. Even though I only needed 16 to make the right size, I made up the extra 2 pairs. Then I could make my choice of favorites for the cover quilt. These here were so pretty, but didn’t make the cut.
After being inspired to do even more service quilting after a guild meeting the other night, I came home and wanted to sew. I grabbed these off a shelf and played with making them into rows. I found a good burgundy in my mom’s stash, as well as a back. So a day later, I have a quilt–and used up leftover blocks, 3 pieces of fabric from Mom’s stash, and 3 scraps of batting pieced together.
This makes me so happy. I love using up–clearing a tiny bit of space in the mess that is my workroom. I love how the colors came together with what was lying around. I love the quilt. And we just might have a new 4 Fat Quarter pattern.
