Anyway, here is Cottage Charm. It's a beautiful kit done by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill. She called the kit Taffy Treats, but I named the quilt Cottage Charm. I totally love the fabrics in it -- Poetry Collection by April Cornell for Moda. In fact, I love the fabrics so much that I tracked down and bought a FQ bundle of all the FQs in the entire collection and they are being shipped to me as we speak. Yeah, I know, like I need more fabric. :oP
The scalloped border was a new one for me. I'd never done one before. It's presentable, but I'm not 100% happy with it. I know I'm a perfectionist, and maybe it's just me or maybe there's a trick out there that I don't know about to get the inside scallops (concave curve?) to not wrinkle a bit. If you know of any tips or tricks on how to achieve that, I'd love to hear from you. I cut the strips on the bias like it called for, but maybe I stretched them too much sewing the binding to the quilt, or maybe I didn't stretch the binding enough. Who knows? Hopefully with practice, I'll become better at it.
Sure hope my sister likes it.
Quilters are poets with fabric,
