Made By You: Rustic Charm

I have a regular feature here on the blog.  We have free patterns listed on the right sidebar of the blog, we have a book Country Girl Modern, we have patterns in our online shop and we have patterns often featured in magazines.  We have so many of you taking those patterns and making them in your own way and your own style.  The blog series features YOUR quilts made with our designs. We love the series as there is no higher compliment to a designer than to know you like our design well enough to spend your time and money to make it.

I got an email from Jo Andersen.  Her, her mom Lucille, and two of her friends got together and challenged themselves to make our Rustic Charm quilt.

Do you remember our Rustic Charm quilt?  Here it is…

This is a wonky star block that is done in a split nine patch style.

It was so fun to dig into the scrap bucket and make this quilt!!

Just wait until you see the ones that Jo and her mom Lucille made.  They are awesome!!

Here is the one made by Lucille….

…and here is the other made by Jo…

Aren’t they awesome??

Jo writes:  “The other ladies probably won’t finish theirs in the next year but both of them are fairly new quilters.  The one-block creates such an amazing pattern and seemed like a good one for me to start them on. My mother started quilting at 70 and has become quite prolific.”

Jo is right.  This is a one block quilt.  It certainly doesn’t look like it, does it?

If you missed at issue and want to get one, there are back issues of American Patchwork and Quilting  here is the link.  If you are hunting through your stack of magazines look for the August 2019 issue.  The cover looks like this…

If you’re wanting Carla to frost a few of your quilts, you can find her HERE.

Thanks so much for sharing the quilts Jo…that was so sweet of you.  I so loved seeing them done up in a more controlled but yet scrappy way!  I’ve looked at them a dozen times and still can’t decide what version I like best.

Blog readers:  I’d love for you to share with us the quilts you have finished from our designs.  To do that drop me an email at

  1. All 3 of these quilts are outstanding. Seeing the same pattern with different fabric choices is my favorite. So inspiring! This design has just been added to my “must do” list.

  2. Gorgeous! All three, but that blue one Really caught my eye! So fun to see everyone’s quilts from the last post well.

  3. okay! Add this one to my list of “WANT TO MAKE” quilts! Jo and her mom did a fantastic job! I admire those who can make a completed quilt in less than a year! – something I never can do! – LOL
    HUGS… and stitches
