some quilting

I decided to take some charm packs I had and just sew them together into a little lap quilt. I have done this before, and really liked the results.  I am not at all a quilter, but I really love seeing all the different colors and prints in a charm pack, and I often buy them, and then don't know what to do with them.  I feel like if I cut them, then I loose some of the print which I don't like.  I bought the charm packs a while ago, and unfortunately couldn't find the coordinating fabrics that match, so will have to do a little shopping. :) Can't wait to show the finished project. 



This is a project that has taken up a lot of my patience.  I just loved the design when I saw it in a shop.  It had been finished and framed, and just looked so lovely framed.  I wasn't sure why I was having so much trouble.  I think it was because of the fabric being rather dark.  I bought this frame, and it is much easier to tell when there is a mistake with it nice and tight on the frame.  I hope to finish it soon, I have the perfect spot for it!  I am sure you will see a post about it again as I make progress on this.
