Hi friends! Hello new friends! I want to share with you what has become a dream of mine.
About a dozen years ago, I discovered charm quilts. Do you know what a charm quilt is? It is a one block quilt with no two fabric pieces the same. No repeats at all. Well once I get an idea in my head, I have a hard time letting it go. ;) So I have been collecting fabric for at least the last 7 years. And then........ nothing. I stitched. I made wall quilts, bed quilts, lap quilts, just not THAT quilt.
At the beginning of this year, I came across Carolien. She was making a Thimble Quilt. GO CHECK IT OUT!!! This is a tiny version of the Tumbler Quilt. She inspired me! Then I figured out how many different fabrics I would need to make a charm Thimble Quilt. HA! Forget that!!
So I decided on a 4 inch tumbler block. I did NOT prewash my hundreds of small pieces of fabric. They are all in the same color range. They will shrink a bit after the first wash, and I am great with that! Oh I did not tell you!! This is a ONE HUNDRED PERCENT PINK CHARM TUMBLER QUILT! tee hee! THIS is my dream my friends!
I have been busy this last week cutting 322 tumbler blocks. I need 162 more pink fabrics though. I need a total of 484 for my charm quilt. Here they are.
Here are all 322 different pink fabrics lined up. I took this picture one second before Henry jumped across the stack.
Thank you for stopping by and listening to my epic pink dream. :) I appreciate you. I will be back soon with a stitchy finish.
Stitching and praying,
