Simply Charming Quilts

Posted by Strlady at 10:13 AM
Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting Tara Lynn Darr at Spring Quilt Market. She is so darn nice! Isn't it great when you admire someone's work and they turn out to be nice on top of being talented! I love her work and she was promoting her new book Simply Charming back then. Of course I had to have it and was looking forward to making all of the little quilts in it, but alas, I think I mentioned yesterday how I am not a huge fan of small quilts. Until recently that is. After I finished my Dot, I still had an itch to use more of my scraps and I had even more of an itch to practice my quilting!

Off I went to look for this book:


I knew it had a slew of small quilts that I loved and they were all made with Charm Squares.;
PERFECT!
I made this one in about 2 hours max (including the cutting).


So, so, easy and perfect. I used my Holiday scraps from when I made Cindy Lou Who.

See all that space for quilting practice!

Go and check out all the other projects in Tara's book.
I'm so happy I had it tucked away.

I'll do a show and tell when I'm finished quilting it.
