And she's done! The happy little Pezzy Pizzazz is finished. I so loved each and every step along the way with this quilt. The Fat Quarterly pattern was beautifully written by Svetlana, the charm pack of Pezzy prints brightened my day and I honestly enjoyed quilting the little concentric diamonds. Woo hoo!
Svetlana's way of making HSTs from the little charm squares was very straight forward and resulted in each and every one of these tiny tiny HSTs working out nearly perfectly. There was only one that had to be unpicked and re-sewn. That's not too bad!
I love the variety of color in this charm pack. There's even a brown that I used. Seriously! Lots of gorgeous bright yellows, blues and a teal that is just smashing.
It was quilted in (semi-) straight line concentric diamonds using one of the diamonds on the front as a guide. I'd put this in the "organic" quilting category as it was not at all perfect or accurate, but I still love it. It's quilted with a bright yellow cotton thread that coordinates with the Kona Canary back. Yum.
If you have no plans this weekend and a nice little charm pack calling your name, do thing of giving this a try. It was so very rewarding. Check this one off of my Finish Along list!
