So with piles of unorganized fabric still stacked around my living room I cut the charm squares in half and started laying them out on the floor. Nothing like an impromptu quilt! :) I figured the easiest and quickest thing to do was to make something similar to the Salt Air Charm Quilt but this time I wanted to try it on point. I didn't have enough fabric to use all prints, so I chose a gray solid for the center squares.
For the quilting I wanted to do something really cool like Chinese characters in all the gray squares since the fabric is Asian themed...but alas, there was no extra time or energy for that. I ended up making a pantograph with swirls and leaves and flowers that are supposed to look like cherry blossoms.
I backed it and bound it with the matching gray...
And photographed it on my friend Ella's sweet antique car. Then I gave it to my cute New Hampshire neighbor friend Tabitha. I was slightly scared of her the first time we met...but then we became great friends! We chatted every time our kids played outside together (which was a LOT) and I totally miss hanging out with her! At least she has a fun quilt to snuggle with if she misses me! ;)
