I loved these sweet prints and knew I would enjoy making a little something for myself to remember the trip by. The best kind of souvenir!
And here they are in fabric version!
Fast forward a year, and I finally did come up with an idea for my Charleston fabric, and sewed it up this week!
I wanted something that wouldn't cut the prints too small, and no HSTs, lol! (I've been trimming a lot of HSTs recently, and I was feeling lazy!)
So, I cut several 2.5 inch strips out of each fat quarter and sewed them together, trying to alternate darks and lights.
I cut those into 6.5 inch squares, and ended up with this layout.
Measures about 12 x 36.
Leftover pieces and strips made the backing and binding.
And a curvy grid for the quilting -
Perfect for my dining room table, and a place to display my South Carolina shell collection!
Plus, a few of the leftover bits turned into some pink bowtie blocks and a couple of 9 patches!
This was definitely my favorite kind of quick project!
