Finish It Up Friday ~ Fairy Tale Friends

Want to see the first charm pack I ever bought? 

I don’t remember how long ago I bought this. Actually, I bought two of them and a bit of yardage of one of the prints. Before I headed out to AZ, I finally decided what to do with them!

 

It seemed a simple idea, but honestly, it took much longer than I thought for a small quilt. 


I don’t think this top can be made without a design wall! Even then, I ended up doing some ripping. The 9 patches finish at 4 1/2 inches.

I didn’t bring that yardage with me. It will probably be used for the back and binding.


Have a great day!

    Oh this is a lovely pattern and it has been on my to-do list ever since I saw it on Cloud 9. Making it with charms really is challenging. Those tiny pieces are painful, cause they move so much!!! But you did a fantastic job.
    Hugs,
    Preeti.
