Zesty Donation Quilt

In an effort to stretch my color and fabric print boundaries, I ordered a couple of mystery charm packs from MO Star Quilt Company. I figured it was the luck of the draw--they would either be colors I loved or colors that I probably should use more often.

Here is what I received:

The solid yellow and background are from my stash.

The name of the line is Zest. To make best use of the prints in the charm pack, I decided on a D9P, so I wouldn't have to cut the charms.

Here is the result:

64" x 75"


Purplish-grey binding matches a color in the print

Only one extra block this time--I'm improving! It went on the back.

Not my favorite colors or prints, but it should make someone happy! I'll have to try this again--stretching is good for me.

  3. I like that! It's not my favorite colors either, but it's very pretty and cheerful and I'm sure it'll find the right person.

  4. I like the colors in this quilt! I also like getting out of my box once in a while and trying something new.

  5. I received the same charm pack and it wasn't that long ago - you are quick. I love how it turned out in this quilt. Now i won't be so afraid - thanks

  6. The colors are so happy, whomever gets the quilt will love it. Thank you so much for doing these good deeds.
