Alison Glass Charm Swap

When Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl announced she was hosting an Alison Glass charm swap I knew I wanted to participate.  What I didn't realize is how fast it would fill up!  I was pretty close to bottom of the list and glad to be included.

I found Historical fiction (7868) in Green from Ex Libris collection by Andover Fabrics at my local quilt shop.

All 72 of the 5" charm squares were cut from 1 1/2 yards and will be on their way to Yvonne tomorrow.

The original print I was planning to use for the swap was Bike Path in blue from her Luck Penny collection.  I was about to cut into it and discovered I had already prewashed it...and that would be breaking swap rule #4. (The perils of a prewasher.)  I think this will make a great binding with the dotted stripes.

Now to wait on my charm squares to arrive.  In the mean time, have your peeked at Alison's new line Seventy-Six?  It's beautiful!

  1. Beautiful fabric that you sent. The whole collection is pretty. Looking forward to seeing what all is made with the charms.

  2. I don't own much Alison Glass fabric although I do love her vibrant colours. Thanks for introducing me to her new line!

  3. That's a great print Paige. It almost looks fussy cut...or is that just the lucky top one? :-)

    1. Sue, you are right, the top one is fussy cut. I wish they could have all been fussy cut! But I did send that one to Yvonne.

  4. I was definitely curious about the charms not being the blue bike path print! Thank you so much for participating; it's going to be fun to see the collection we create.

  5. I wish I could have participated in this but being in Canada it didn't work out for me. Heh maybe I should start my own....maybe next year. I'll have to ask Yvonne about it.

  6. I missed the charm swap but what a great idea. Probably better to save that bike path for a binding. You're right, it would be a perfect use for it.
