A Charming Surprise!

Look what I made in a matter of hours this morning! This little cutie is a surprise for a fellow blogger and I'm posting this picture as a teaser (yes, I'm evil - LOL) I can't tell you who she is - it would truly ruin the surprise.

I've been promising this blogging friend a package for awhile now and I believe she's probably given up on me by now. Never give up on me - I usually fulfill my promises! When this blogging friend started leaving comments on my blog I was doing a lot with charm squares and she'd say that she was amazed at what I could do with so little. I thought that was sweet! Well, I decided that I needed to make a little something with charm squares for her so I started searching for 'the' charm squares. Nothing was calling out her name to me so I've been struggling. Well, this morning I was searching for something in a drawer and I came across some packages of Spencer Museum by Moda and her name immediately came to mind. So, with two charm packs I made this little tabletopper for her. I'm hoping to stop by the quilt store later today for some backing fabric as I'd like to quilt it tomorrow and get that long promised package in the mail. I get the feeling that she lives in a charming home with her family so hopefully this little charmer will appeal to her.

So, what do you think - will she like it????
*****************************************************************************************
Speaking of promises! I have a ton of saved e-mails and comments that have been waiting for responses from me - remember I eventually fulfill my promises so I promise you that I will respond to each and every one very soon. Maybe tonight - my D'backs are having a day game so it would be the perfect opportunity for me to spend a few hours in front of this computer monitor!
The birthday celebration continues - off to dinner with my DD and her family this afternoon. See, a birthday should be a month long celebration. LOL
Thanks for stopping by - I love it when you do!
In Friendship!

what a great idea for a charm pack!! I have collected so many (normally only 1 per fabric line) and can't find patterns for 1 charm packs. Your secret friend will love it!!

This is a very cute pattern for a charm pack. I hope the recipient will like it. I would anyway! About Hand-quilting: I have been hand quilting for 10 years now and at the beginning I did stab quilting but then it was not fast enough and I had another go at the rocking movement method and it worked (after some time anyway!) so keep patient and try, try and try again. Take care.

Susan said...

That is a cute little table topper! Of course she will love it.

Nan said...

You know she will love it! How could she not? You made it just for her, and there's nothing better than that!
Good to hear from you, Darlene. You always brighten my day!
xo, Nan
