Christmas Charm Revisited

Blogging is a great memory aid.

After Christmas I got my Christmas Charm quilt out again and began adding more rows. I'd been collecting charm squares for a number of years and thought I could finally finish it. I wondered how long ago I had started this project. The post from 2009 said 15 years earlier.

I include these close-ups to show the 'charming' prints, so many are lovely small-figured calicos (click to enlarge). Does anyone else feel that quilt fabric has lost something in its move to so many textured tone-on-tone?

Next up, borders, batting, backing and bind. Maybe we'll be able to enjoy this quilt Christmas 2016!
