Beautiful Marmalade Fabrics

I turned an adorable Marmalade charm pack of 42 beautiful 5"x5" pieces into a quilt top. This line is only available for purchase in charm packs for now. I think the full line is available sometime in October.

Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille.

This would be the perfect quilt for a little baby girl. 

I have added borders to this top to make it a big bigger since I took this photo. I am really liking the way this quilt looks. It's so feminine that it's only appropriate with scalloped edges. I am reading all about how to do scallop edges. If you know the best way to do scallop edges, then please let me know! I plan to hand quilt this piece as well.

I am in love with quilting with charm packs. It's the best way to use up every fabric from the entire collection without having to cut from the bolt. 

Quilting seems to be the only thing going on these days. Hopefully the cooler weather will inspire me to knit once again. What are you working on these days?

I love Marmalade - what a beautiful quilt!

I love the idea of charm packs but have never used one. It is a good idea to use all the fabrics in the line and let the experts do the choosing. Very pretty.
