This is such a fun piece!
I have seen this method a few times and wanted to give it a go. This is a really fast and fun quilt-as-you-go method. I decided to be very organic - no pins, no glue, just plop down the charms on the solid background, quilt across the row. I did nudge the edges where necessary so they didn't flip under.
Washed and crinkly with nice fuzzy edges of the charms, I just love this quilt!
Showed this at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting, and they asked for a demo. Our December lesson was hatched.
For the two samples, I had random sizes and shapes in one, and the other design was in the shape of a tree.
Here are some of the inspiration that came together for this quilt ...
And from Cheryl Arkison's book – Sunday Morning Quilts, “The Original Ticker Tape”
