Here is my completed quilt, 26 x 26 inches charm quilt for the "Isn't That Charming" and just in the nick of time too!  
The challenge is to use all 5 x 5 inch squares to construct a quilt.  I used 90 charms from these assorted charm packs _ Windham Fabrics "CITRUS"; Kona Solids and Denyse Schmidt solids, and "HONEY HONEY" 

Here are some pictures of the process.

charm packs!

36 charms sewn together for a start and if you look closely you can see the first 4 cuts

Finished top with the striped charms added!

I thought the reassembled top needed a little something to "pep" it up, so I pulled out my Dresden ruler to make some points!

Top with the Dresden plates

Now, that Dresden center needs something else for a center point!!!

Charms sewn together and cut at 2 1/2 inches and then reattached end to end for the binding...

Here is a close up of the bit of quilting!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a "Charming" day!

March block of the month!  Whooohooo! Beware the Ides of March!  Yesterday was Pi celebration.  Early on in elementary school,  that was probably the only set of numbers relating to mathematical equations that I remembered.  It had to do with eating a generous portion of lemon meringue pie, mmmm yum❤  3.14!  So, I managed to get the March block "Vacation Time"  done today.

Floral Fantasy - PROJECT QUILTING!

Whoo hooooo!   Project Quilting Season 6 - Project 5 -  MY FAVORITE FABRIC!

Last Sunday, I had to report a failure to complete a quilt for Kim's Project Quilting Challenge over on her blog !  Can I get a whoop whoop???  Whoop, whoop, whoop!  Hooray (!) I am happy to report a finish.  If you only knew how many times I started a project over the past two years only to not finish for one reason or another.  I am so happy!

So here is a little about my project.  The challenge is to use my favorite fabric, (yikes!) cut into my favorite fabric to make a quilt/quilted item within the week.  I chose my latest favorite fabric; a lovely green and pink floral by extraordinary artist, Nel Whatmore for FreeSpirit.  It was such a lovely few fat quarters that just blew me away.

Favorite fabric!   So gorgeous!
