    Aqua, teal and brown Quilt from Walmart pre-packaged charms, stripes and fat quarters

    While shopping at Walmart, I kept seeing these selections of pre-packaged charm squares, stripes and fat quarters in brown, teal, aqua and white. I bought them and then designed a quilt with 10 inch squares, running a aqua sashing between the rows. Another 4-H leader helped me piece the charm squares, then I did the rest. I decided to make it extra long, so the quilt could fold over the pillows saving the time from making pillow shams. I loved the colors, that went back and bought more packages to make one for me at a later time. Naturally this quilt was donate for fund raiser.

    Guess I need to think about putting my quilts on the close line like I see the Amish do in PA. I keep using the same bed and blue room.

    colors are great. nice design.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love it! I just finished the top of one in the same fabrics. Like you I was drawn to the color combo. I used strips and 1/2 yard pieces. I like yours though. Will post mine once it is quilted.
