Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Sunday, December 4, 2016

On my design wall...

I've slowly been turning these groups of three


into nine patches - for the Charming Plus QAL.  There are 30 made so far of the 42 blocks I have planned.


These blocks have a low volume plus (made with all kinds of scraps) and corners made of North Woods by Kate Spain.  On the design wall, everything looks kind of muted, but it's fun to take a closer look - 


I love the mix of reds, dark greens, lime green, and even a little brown and light blue.   The 42 blocks will make a small quilt, set 6 x 7.  This one might need a border, but I haven't gotten that far yet!  

Sharing with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework for some scrappy Sunday inspiration!

  1. Very pretty. I have yet to understand modern quilter's infatuation with the plus sign, though. Do you know?
