Blogger's Quilt Festival: Fall 2010

This picture shows the truest colors.
Finally finished, my Blogger's Quilt Festival entry.  Now I will allow myself some time to visit the other beautiful entries, and you should to.  Just click on the nifty little button on the top left of this page! 

This is how it hangs just above my piano.  I am loving it!  The charms are Jennifer Paganelli prints, some of which I won from Joan.  The pattern is a modification of Kate Conklin's Charm Bracelet (which I also won from Joan's giveaway).  I will definitely be using this pattern again, unmodified.  Then it will be throw sized, and have some movement to the links.  Yum!!!

I did one little run of hand quilting between each row.  It is difficult to see, but I used a lovely variegated thread with royal blue, deep aqua, and (of course) purple!  It was supposed to be used for tatting, but it was perfect for this project.  Since there is still a lot of it left, I am glad that I love those colors and won't mind using it more.

The back is also Jennifer Paganelli.  She, in case you couldn't tell, is my favorite designer!
I was a good girl and labeled my quilt.  Its name?  Paganelli Charm...of course!

Even the binding is Paganelli, and I am loving it!
