My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

One Monthly Goal – Layers of Charm

Nothing like waiting to the last day to reach a goal!

Finished is finished and I’m happy to have my second finish of 2017.

Layers of Charm is one of my favorite quilt patterns from the Fat Quarter Shop. This pattern is part of their short cut quilt series and believe me this was super easy to make. The pattern requires one layer cake and one charm pack. Not only do you get the free pattern you can also watch this video where Kimberly demonstrates how to make one yourself.  The pattern includes instructions for many sizes including a table runner!

I used the Robert Kaufman Artisan Batiks – Noel Metallic layer cake and yardage from the Robert Kaufman Fusions line as my “charms”.

I added a little embroidery to the center of one block. The prints of the layer cake have a winter theme including snowflakes so I chose a design that would complement the fabric. I purchased the design from Embroitique.

I keep a journal with walking foot designs and decided to try the double parallel straight lines with this quilt.  I used my favorite masking tape technique for marking.
