Charleston Pavement Quilt Top Finished

I was put on “house arrest” last week as weeks of messing around with a cold-sinus infection-laryngitis-cough evolved into pneumonia.  Again.  Sometimes it is hard to be grateful for circumstances.

But, on the bright side, between resting and napping and doing nothing, I did get a lot of sewing time.  I tidied my sewing room and evaluated projects.

Over a year ago, I won the Charleston Pavement pattern from Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts.  (She is the same one who sponsors the 350 block project.) There was a handy pile of inherited scraps as a starting point.  There WERE a few things to be grateful for.

And the top is a finish!  (Pictures are a little tough right now because we have about 16″ of snow on the ground and it is snowing hard.  But that isn’t important.)

I am so pleased.  I highly recommend the pattern.  It would make a great Quilt of Valor, or wedding quilt (which is what this one is), or even an Eye-Spy.  It can use precut jelly roll (2-1/2″) strips or scraps.  Really, just so versatile.  This is one I will definitely make again.

Go check out Shelly’s store and get yourself a Charleston Pavement pattern.  You’ll be glad you did.

  3. The time was well spent. 16″? Ugh! But I know you are prepared and will make the best of it. The quilt top is gorgeous. I like the greens that have an occasional non-green thrown in. It looks so lovely. Lucky couple to whom you are giving it. I hope that between the pneumonia and the snow, you are able to get back to normal this coming week.

  4. That’s a lousy way to start off the holiday season!! I’m impressed you had the energy to cut and piece this beautiful quilt!! I hope you are back to good health really soon!!!

  5. I’m so sorry you have pneumonia again. Prayers for a fast recovery with no lasting effects. Get more rest. Your Charleston Pavement quilt turned out wonderful! I love it so scrappy!
