Starting a new project

I love this quilt pattern

It's been on my project list for a long time, but it's got to be now. I want to have it for the cottage this summer. I am a big fan of Denyse Schmidt quilts. I think she has a unique voice in this community and her modern approach is in evidence here. It's a really pretty pixilated bit of happiness isn't it?

I've chosen my colours and put them in order (very similar but not the same as hers, although she does provide an exact map if you want to recreate what she's done).

I've even sewn some of the strips together but I'll wait to post that when the colour block is done. I don't have a design wall so it's tricky to see them in a way that makes any sense at all.

I've posted this WIP on Facebook and Instagram as well.  I intend to pressure myself into finishing it quickly, so a little community attention might help with that.

It was so great to meet you Daryl! Your booth at the Quilt X show was the best one there! Can’t wait to sew up my Big Charming quilt with the Denyse Schmidt Charm Squares! Thanks again!

Hi Andrea – It’s a charm pack. They’re for sale in the pre-cuts section.

Ambitious but so beautiful. I love that you’re using all solids. Did you buy charm squares or did you cut all those pieces. Too much cutting for me but I can’t wait to see the top when it’s all together.
