Recently I discovered The Village Quilter in Mount Holly, a fun alternative to my local quilt shop that's not too far from home. I went over there to poke around and couldn't resist picking up a charm pack of Moda's "Hunky Dory" fabrics, thinking I'd do a quick prayer quilt and get to work with some pretty prints at the same time. They soaked me for another couple of yards of fabric by handing me a "free" charm quilt pattern, but I tried not to be too bothered by that. Here's the result:
I enjoyed working with the fabric so much that I decided to quilt it instead of tie it, so I made another quilt to give as a prayer quilt and did some outline quilting and bound it instead of turning it. I like the backing too; it was fun to use a big piece of a large-scale print. These pictures were taken with my phone and do not do the quilt justice -- I will try to get better ones up soon.
