Between Charming Friends…..

Here is my finished quilt top from Between Charming Friends quilt along.

BetweenCharmingFriends-1

The pattern suggested that it was jelly roll friendly…but it wasn’t very friendly with my jelly roll.  My jelly roll was from Collections for a Cause Alliance.  There were not enough strips to make the blocks.  I need fabric for the borders so I hunted around the internet and found some of the fabric line and it was on clearance.  I’m thinking…just what I need and on sale….WOW!  I even bought backing fabric that was 108″ wide for $6 a yard.  I bought extra of the border and binding fabric to make the blocks that I was short for…..well….the mailman came and there was no binding fabric in the package.  Apparently the company I ordered from was sold out.  UGH!

I dug through my fabric stash and found enough to finish the blocks.  Now I was on to my border problem.  I took my pieced top to the local quilt shop and ended up finding the dark brown fabric.  It was from the Pink and Chocolate 2 line.  I ended up purchasing a different inner border fabric too.  I just couldn’t make any fabric there go with the fabric I had purchased on line.

All in all it has turned out pretty good so far.  I think this quilt will be donated to our high school Music Booster benefit in the fall….It can be added to my growing stack of flimsies.

    Oh, I hate when that happens!! And, it has happened to me a couple of times in the last month – and I don’t know until my order is received and then I have to go find the missing fabric somewhere else and pay for more shipping! Aaargh! I guess I should be grateful we even have all of the options we do to find fabric. The quilt looks fabulous though, you did a great job of filling in!

    Your quilt is fabulous – I’m sorry I missed it earlier. I hope you enjoyed my pattern. I’m sorry you struggled with the jelly roll – maybe my pattern is not correct. HMMMM Love the brown border.
