The Challenge

Our shop owner Julie asked each of us to make a quilt from this book using of one of our older charm packs.  During the Western Washington Shop Hop this year, the quilts will be displayed together in a group.

I made the design Greta, using a charm pack of Odyssea.  It was quick and easy to piece, and what a great use of just one charm pack and a little bit of yardage!  I quilted this myself with straight lines.   It's super cute (if I do say so myself!).

If you're in Western Washington for the Shop Hop June 22 through 26, stop by Keepsake Cottage and see all the cute charm quilts and lots of other good stuff on display at the shop.



  1. Stinkin' cute, too! Love how you did that border, too. Really sets the whole thing off.

  2. It is Super cute!! Love the little fish on the border!

  3. I love anything that helps me use up my horrendous stash of charm packs, Lisa! This is adorable! I'll sure miss the shop hop - over here it takes a day just to get to one and back - lol!

  4. Love your quilt, and I think I'd love that book too. Might have to get a copy.

  5. This quilt turned out fabulous!! Well done, you have such a talent matchings fabrics to design to make stunning pieces!!!

  6. I'm finally getting caught up on my favorite blogs after being out of town, I almost missed this adorable quilt. That top turned out really cute, what are you going to do with it after the shop hop and it's back home? Your straight line quilting was all this top needed, great job! Doesn't it feel great to have a finish!
