Vine Creek Charming Thursday

Our featured charm pack this week is from Vine Creek. I found a wonderful old border stripe fabric that looked very KT to me and built the group around it with several smaller prints in leaf-y, vine-y patterns.
To utilize the stripe without cutting it up, we used a Jelly Roll to piece vertical strips and alternated them with the border stripe to create a lap quilt. Since we were using a JR, the flying geese units were pieced with a rectangle and 2 squares leaving small triangles on each side to be trimmed. My trusty piecer, Lois (hating to waste any fabric) double-stitched the corner triangles so when she trimmed them off, it resulted in little bias squares - almost 200 of them! My challenge was to make another project using the new-found treasures.
The bonus project in this pattern turned the often times wasted cutoff triangles into a delightful table topper. By enlarging the floral motif from the fabric for an applique, it came together simply and easily.

Comment here by Sunday 10pm to enter for a chance to win a Vine Creek charm pack and the pattern. If the stars align and I get an internet connection while I'm away, I'll post the winner next Monday.

Hop on over to Joanna's blog   for her big day on the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop. She always has something fresh and fun to share. Then click back here on Friday for KT day - Sept. 16th - for a trip to the fair and a pile of goodies you won't want to miss!

    I have a layer cake of Summer's End, I think it would be great to use for this pattern , 'just' have to think of a fabric for the stripes .

  76. Hi! I almost missed this one! My husband, our three Shelties and I are heading out in the morning for a road trip from Ohio to Colorado. Ye we will be traveling through Kansas to get there, along I-70. I quilt shops that I am stopping at in all states but Illinois. It will be Sunday when we are going through there so they will all be closed.

    Anyway.. Love the pattern, I don't think I have seen that one before! Glad you had a good time at the fair!

    Vine Creek was one of my favorite lines.

    Happy Quilting...
