This is my second version using the "Oh Sew Charming!" pattern and a charm pack. I used a Moda Vintage Modern charm pack in this quilt. I chose a cream with grey dot background fabric and arranged the design in color families of red, green, pink and turquose. I used a flower stitch on my Viking Sapphire sewing machine as part of the quilting design to incorporate the outside borders into the design. I "shadow" quilted near this stitching to fill in the border areas. I had a hard time matching any pink embellishments with the peachy old fashioned pink in this quilt-the pinks I chose all appeared very cool toned and I quit and decided to go without an. I love this line of fabrics especially the houndstooth!! I will make one more of these quilts but I am going to change the borders.
