Charleston Pavement FINISHED

Charleston Pavement is the first big finish for the year.  YAY!


I love the pattern and am already planning a second quilt using it.


This one (and the next one) is a wedding quilt for a colleague.  She is getting married the first week of April.


I am so pleased at how it turned out.  Thank you, Shelly, for a great design.

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.
