Hometown Quilt

Well, I tried my hand at the Disappearing 9-patch again, and this time, I did it right.

I used 4 charm packs of the gorgeous Hometown Collection by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics. I love the colors and the way the entire collection blends together so effortlessly. On the back, I used some extra charms, yardage of a polka dot print and one of my favorite prints from the Circa 1934 Collection. It is bound with Taza yellow color stripe. Which, overall, makes me quite happy.

I hope you all like it as much as I do!

4 Star Quilt

Well, as you know I've been on a fabric fast, which has given me lots of time to put together all those WIPs lying around. This quilt has been waiting for the perfect binding material, which I promptly purchased at the end of my fast. This quilt is special to me because it was the first time I used free-motion quilting. I also outlined the stars with 3 different Aurifil thread colors 1/4" apart each. The quilt is about 61" x 61" and it's the perfect size for snuggling. I truly love this quilt, but I'm thinking of possibly putting it up on Etsy. Any thoughts?
