Tuesday Archives

 I've been participating in Val's Tuesday Archives link up when I remember. Val is taking us through the alphabet, and I've linked up with Award winning quilts and Boy quilts. Today's themes are Charm quilts and Chicken quilts. I don't have any chicken quilts, so here are a few of my quilts made from charm squares.

Low Volume Bright Hopes was made in March 2013 from chopped up charms that were gathered in an online low volume fabric swap.

 Charming Christmas was started in a Pat Sloan quilt along that I completed in November 2012. It started with a charm pack with some other fabrics added in.

This red and white quilt was inspired by the red and white exhibit in n New York. My friend Karen at Sew Many Ways hosted a red and white fabric swap. This was also completed in November 2012.

Outfoxed was a quick baby quilt made in December 2013 from 6" charms that were cut from fat quarters. 

I made Cora's quilt in July 2012 when I needed a quick baby quilt for my husband's coworker. The charms were collected in another online fabric swap.

And I love making table runners from charms.

 See you next week with Chevron and Christmas quilts.

Nice! I especially LOVE the low-volume quilt. I went to Kathryn's new shop for her mystery quilt-along. She demonstrated your fabric boxes - cute! And thanks for sharing!

My favorite in this post is Cora's Quilt. Baby things are always fun to make!

How pretty! You are very talented. It would be difficult to choose a favorite! I'm visiting from the AMB blog tour and can't wait to see your license plate debut! Isn't this a great deal of fun?

what a lovely selection of quilts, wondering what a chicken quilt is? or is it just a quilt using chicken fabrics.
