I received a beautiful pair of charm packs in the quilt-along along with a pattern book (thank you, @AudiobookLover!). The colorway and patterns are absolutely lovely and I wanted to turn them into a wonderful gift for someone I love.
My parents-in-law are celebrating their anniversary this month, and I decided to make them a quilt. Using a background fabric, I was able to turn two charm packs into a 55" square throw quilt. It’s backed in a navy blue gingham fabric, and used 100% cotton batting. I did a paisley hearts free-motion quilting motif from edge to edge. It’s bound in the same background fabric, all machine-stitched.
That is just lovely! What a wonderful gift.
Such a thoughtful gift, wrapping your family up in quilty hugs!
It’s so classy and crisp! Beautiful gift.
Thanks! I’ll probably give it to them tomorrow since we’re not having a big party for their anniversary.
This quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Love the muted colors and the way you put everything together.
As always, your quilting is lovely! The blue gingham was a perfect backing choice.
I am so happy that you were able to take those charm packs and turn them into this beautiful gift! I am sure this will be well received tomorrow. Happy anniversary to your in-laws!
What a perfect anniversary gift!! Wonderfully made and sure to be loved.
Thank you so much!
I liked this quilt so much that I recently picked up another pair of charm packs (and gingham backing fabric, lol) to make a similar quilt for myself.
Beautiful! I love the softness of the colors and that paisley heart quilting is fabulous. This is an absolutely amazin gift.
So gorgeous. They will love it!
That is absolutely stunning! What a beautiful labor of love.
Thank you! They did really like it. My MIL showed it off to her siblings that afternoon.
