    This is beautiful! I never would have thought of borders made with charm squares! Awesome job
    Housework is for those who don't quilt!

    Very nice quilt. What kind of fabric was the troublesome one? I think Kona is about the safest for background purposes.

    I'm not sure what the background fabric was, it's in a BOM from Fat Quarter Shop. gonna email them and find out. I thought it was Kona, but usually don't fray like this one is. I have trimmed so many times and have to do it all again.

    Is "basket of scraps" the name of this quilt pattern? I really like it and I have a bunch of 30's fabric lift over from another quilt that I could use for this.

    Very pretty, good job.
    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    Love your colors, love the pattern. It's a gorgeous quilt! You did a great job. Sorry you had so much trouble with that white fabric.

    Yes it is, mine was the BOM. I emailed the company about the background fraying so much all they said was sorry about that??

    I really like your quilt. It is perfect for '30's fabrics.
