With such a variety of colors, those charms play nice with the all the prints in the kimonos. Thank you, members of the guild, for the kimono blocks so many years ago, now turned into a great quilt! And since this is made with contributions from guild members, it's only fitting that it go back to the guild's Philanthropy group, for distribution to someone in need.
Before it goes, how about a closer look?
The border is two charm squares deep, bringing the quilt's size to 63" x 83". Just look at all the color in the border!
Here's another corner.
Since this quilt is so busy, I kept the quilting simple, using the Paperchase panto, making it quite soft.
And with yardage, charm squares, and scraps leftover, I managed to puzzle together a backing, knocking out the theme from my stash.
Just look at all that piecing at the end.
This quilt is totally a scrap quilt, as even the batting is composed of pieces. Nice to have that out of the storage area too. This one was a win-win all around! If you're inspired to make something like this, check out the FREE Kimono block tutorial to get started.
