Mini Charm Chocolate Quilt and For the Love of Sewing : A Finished Quilt

So a few weeks ago, I drove down from the UP to spend a girls weekend with some of my quilty BFFs. It was just what the doctor ordered. We were settled into our new home and my hubby started his new job. So a little downtime with friends was nice.

I pieced this top while staying with my in-laws during our moving transition period. I made this entirely from my stash and it felt wonderful to make something without buying anything. This is just a fun little quilt.

For the retreat I knew I wanted a quick project and to actually finish something. So I did the quilting and bound it. It was nice to get some pictures in the gorgeous snowy setting on the river.

We also made mug rugs to swap.

I used the mini spools pattern from Thimbleblossoms and added the heart. Another way to use up those precious this scraps.

  1. Lovely quilt! I am always pleased at the stash quilt finishes. Have to line up my projects for my upcoming week. Glad you felt settled enough to go - it does take time doesn’t it!

    1. Thanks Kathleen, it is nice to feel more settled and starting some routines in our new house. Hope you have some finishes for your week!

  2. I have that pattern. Will start it one day, when some of my many UFOs are done and gifted. Sewing with friends is sooooo much fun! Cute little mug rug.

  3. Congrats! on your newly completed quilt. LOVE that you used your fabric stash to pull this together!!
