NEW QUILT PATTERN: Positive Charm - uses charm pack, layer cake, fat quarters/eighths, or cut yardage


Thrilled to introduce Positive Charm Quilt Pattern. This pattern finally worked it's way up the list to completion. Yay! One of the reasons I love this pattern is it combines my love of charm packs and a plus sign/cross quilt. Quilty perfection, in my humble opinion : )


With a couple of my favorite charm packs (Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics) and some Riley Blake Designs Chocolate Basic Shades I made up the throw size, four other sizes to choose.


To be honest, I was a bit nervous making a quilt with such a dark background but I love it! It adds warmth and coziness to the quilt yet it remains cheerful and bright. And isn't the little check binding just darling?! It is a print from Catalina by Fig Tree & Co.


Positive Charm quilt pattern offers five sizes to choose from (lap to king) and five fabric options  (charm squares (5"), layer cake (10"), fat quarters, fat eights, and cut yardage). So many options!


One of my sons suggested a green print for the backing so I went with a favorite Ella & Ollie floral. I usually like small prints best, but there is something about these large Fig Tree florals that pulls me.


On Positive Charm I tried vertical straight-line quilting. Not sure if I prefer horizontal over vertical quilting. Verdict is still out on that one. Vertical means less quilt rolled up under the machine throat but it also means longer lines to quilt. Pros and cons either way.


If you are looking for a quick, fun quilt finish, look no further. This pattern has very little matching and nesting seams.

Happy quilting!
