Introducing...Charmalade

The BiG day is finally here!!  
The day I can share with you what I have been working on. 
 I have a project on the Moda Bake Shop!!! 
 I can't believe it! 
 I was so thrilled when they accepted my quilt and now I get to share it with all of you too!!!

This is 
Charmalade


 I submitted the quilt back in May, had to wait for the fabric and 
you all know how much time I have spent at my dad's lately.  
The biggest hurdle for me was deciding how to quilt it. 

I chose feathers in the white space in the center of the quilt with straight lines on the colored part.



I used aqua thread for most of the quilting.  
I used cream for stitch in the ditch on the borders.

Quilting modeled by Jack.


 I did the feathers on Liz's long arm and all the straight lines on my Bernina.   
Liz did all the circles in the printed outer border. 


 I am in love with the quilting on this one.

The fabrics are Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille and Moda Bella Snow.





I love that striped binding.

Have you ever used the bias ruler to cut bias binding?

Made all the joined strips match perfectly!
