Spring Fling quilt from Charm About You

spring fling quilt by Lucy Brennan | Charm About You

I'm so lucky that I get to have SO MUCH FUN creating designs with bright and beautiful fabric. For this quilt I picked out prints from Zuma by Tula Pink and a range of colours from Tula Pink solids.  A classic block in the centre and medallion style borders made with a mix of regular machine piecing and foundation paper piecing, make for a modern and dynamic quilt. My Spring Fling quilt pattern is in Issue 71 of Love Patchwork & Quilting - out now!

The detail in the prints is just amazing, there's so many that I thought were ...

My Wonderwall from Charm About You


Wonderwall curved quilt by Charm About You featured in Love Patchwork and Quilting

It should come as no surprise that I get very excited about fabric. I've been sharing what I buy, stitch and make here for over seven years. The colours, prints, the way it handles, the endless combinations... fabric brings me joy. 

The opportunity to get to chose and work with fabric is truly something special. I SQUEALED a lot when these beauties I picked arrived from Freespirit. Vibrant, rich, bright, happy colours of Designer Essentials Solids:

top row: Cosmo, Melon, Pomegranate, Gold, Tropical
bottom row: Serpent, Clearwater, Julep, Citrine

And I kept on SQUEALING because this was also in ...

GINGERBREAD HOUSE SEWALONG from Charm About You

Gingerbread House Quilt by Gracey Larson in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine

Who can resist such an adorable quilt pattern?! It is seasonal cuteness at it's best. This beautiful Gingerbread House quilt  by Gracey Larson features in the latest Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, issue 66 out now.

The blocks are all traditionally pieced using easy methods like corner squares triangles. Row-by-row quilts are so appealing, the neat structure appeals to my organised side and the possibility of easily mixing things up pleases the rebel in me! Full of sweet blocks, the quilt is made up of the Gingerbread man, Candy cane, Gumdrops, Mint sweet, Tree cookie and Hot chocolate blocks. I ...

Fall Quilting- Keep Warm with Indie Boheme Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello Quilty Friends,

What’s your favorite thing about making a quilt? It’s super hard to choose for me because I enjoy the whole process from start to finish. It really is a journey that is both therapeutic and at times can be a bit stressful.

Whichever part you enjoy the ...
