Wrapped in Paisley Charming Thursday

Welcome to another edition of Charming Thursday. For those of you who are new to the KT Blog, we've been giving away a charm pack a week for the past 30 weeks, in the order my fabric collections were released. This week, Wrapped in Paisley (#31) is up for grabs. We'll continue untill all 38 charms have been won. In December, the giveaway will be for one of each of the 38 charm packs - over 1200 charm squares!!!  You won't want to miss a chance at that one!

A lucky find in an antique store scored the pretty paisley print that inspired the line. Although it was 3 times larger and pretty ugly in pinks and greys, I could see the potential. After returning home, I found a cute stripe with dots in my stash as a companion piece. Laying on the table next to each other, they very much reminded me of cool vintage wrapping paper. Hence, the Wrapped in Paisley name.




For the quilt projects, what better way to use Wrapped in Paisley than to wrap presents? From the charm quilt to table runners to a large lap quilt, all featured various packages wrapped in delightful prints. It's one of my favorite Christmas quilts to date.

                                                          All Wrapped Up Charm Pattern



The lucky winner this week will receive a Wrapped in Paisley booklet, charm pattern and charm pack. Just comment by 10pm. Sunday night and check back Monday morning to see if you're the winner.

There are still a few more days of the Moda Blog Hop. Don't miss it!
