Apraxia Charm Box Quilt

When my good old high school friend Nancy asked if I could make a donation quilt for the speech apraxia event she was organizing I didn’t hesitate to say YES! She is a huge advocate for her daughter and the cause. Read more about it hereĀ http://casana.apraxia-kids.org/site/TR?team_id=9734&fr_id=1790&pg=team

I pieced the top and back of this quilt back in January and finally got it sandwiched and quilted in early April.

This was my first full size quilt to free motion quilt. I choose a large scale figure eight edge to edge design.

The pattern is a expanded modification on the Fat Quarter Shop’s Charm Box tutorial.

 

I was able to use a lot of fabric from my stash that wasn’t my normal style but definitely beautiful and with a kid or whimsical adult free. The collection is called Melodies by Sarah Campbell for Michael Miller fabrics. I only had to purchase a yard for the boarder.
