I had two very pretty autumnal charm packs arrive today. I actually ordered them to help me decide which fabrics to use for my Chevron Quilt, but, over the weekend my oldest son dropped a not so subtle hint that he would like a mum quilt! To be honest I was totally at sea, the boy is 15 and impossible to buy for, but then these charms arrived. I had a play about this morning, cut some fat quarters which came in a lucky dip sale and added one or two charms from another pack. What do you think?
Most of the charms are from Modas Harvest Bouquet collection. I think my boy would like this, He is into brown at the moment, so, I'll get them sewn together and find something to use as a border/ backing fabric.
I had already decided that the other pack was more inspiring for the chevron quilt, it's another Moda collection, 'Autumn Journey' I'll decide on which fabrics I want and make a note of them, then make up a second charm quilt with those too, I have enoughof the fat quarter pieces left to make another the same size and with that in mind they should look kind of like a pair.
