Finished Charm Quilt

 
 The best part of quilting for me is when I have a finished quilt. I just finished this cute charm pack quilt. In the picture below is the unwashed quilt which matches so well with my daughter's orange sneakers. Orange is her favorite color, I think she has three pairs of orange shoes. She is a teenager and loves her orange shoes.
 Quilt is washed and right out of the dryer. I am thrilled at how the quilt crinkled up after the first wash. This one has Hobbs 80/20 cotton batting like most of my quilts. 
 I am glad I went with a solid red binding. Love it!.
 Just for fun a few pictures of the quilts on my bed. My favorite string quilt with the yo-yo quilt at the end of the bed.
 I love this yo-yo quilt and I'm thinking of starting another one. I sewed random yo-yos on a quilted white piece of fabric. It is fun to make the yo-yos with the yo-yo maker.
Happy quilting until next time,
Millie

Love that charm quilt, it is perfect! And I like how you've used your yo-yo's. I might try that one of these days.

I love the simplicity of the charm quilt and the vibrant colors.

That is a great idea for the bed runner! Hmmmm...I might have to give it some thought :)

Charm quilts are so much fun to make and then enjoy when they're finished. Yours are fabulous, Millie.

The yo-yos randomly sewn are adorable.

Millie, I love your quilts! Your color combinations are fantastic. So many times a charm pack has colors that aren't really compatible, I think. But yours are all so very friendly with each other all around. Great job of quilting it also. Now, how about that gorgeous blue and yellow one behind your charm one? That one, too, is gorgeous. The fabric looks familiar.
What a clever, talented lady you are. Thanks for showing them to us and always be proud.

GORGEOUS QUILTS MILLIE! Love your yo yo quilt. What a smart idea to sew them onto a whole clothe quilt! I recently inherited some yo yo's from my husband's grandma so I might borrow your idea! :)

Gosh Millie, it always lifts my spirit to visit your blog. Such pretty quilts! Can you believe i have never made a single yo-yo in my life? I like your idea of how to use on a quilt.
