Well, it is not picture weather here, but the Fading Charms top is finished and I really want to share.
It started with a 100-patch. Is that starting to sound boring? I really hope not, because the more I work with them the more ideas I have.
The idea for this pattern came to me while out walking one morning. It is hard to tell how the ideas in my head will translate on fabric. But, this one is close to what I originally imagined.
The background fabric is something called “weaver’s cloth.” I like the linen-ish texture of it, but NOT how easily it frays. I wouldn’t choose it again.
Thank you again to all who contributed squares to this project. As far as I know, each charm is a unique fabric. If you see a duplicate, pretend you didn’t, please, and let me keep my illusions. I wouldn’t want the charm of this quilt to fade.
This version uses 2-1/2″ squares and finishes at 72-1/2″. If you use 2″ squares to start it will be 54-1/2″, and 36-1/2″ if you start with 1-1/2″ squares. A full tutorial/pattern coming soon. Just double-checking the math.
