Charming Nine: A Collaboration with Sharon Holland

It's been awhile but I'm back today to share a fun collaboration with my AGF fabric design sister Sharon Holland that includes a free new quilt pattern!

If you follow my Instagram you may have seen my project reels and posts including my current fabric crush, errr obsession -- my most recent collection with AGF, Homebody + Sharon's Kismet + two Bonnie Christine prints from her Lambkin collection that pair perfectly! Just look how amazing this big bundle is that Brooke at Lady Belle Fabric put together!

Homebody +Kismet + 2 Lambkin Prints

Using these prints I've already made many things, including a batch of herringbone patchwork bags, several quilted journals and now two large throw size nine patch quilt tops!

Scrappy Journals

When it came time to choose a quilt pattern for these beautiful fabrics, I chose the simple, classic nine patch pattern because I wanted something super scrappy, fun and cozy that would just let all of these gorgeous fabrics shine! I had made a few 18" quilted Homebody pillows for my Homebody LookBook using the pattern of alternating 6.5" nine patches with 6.5" print squares and I LOVE how those turned out so I knew a quilt in this style would be absolutely perfect!

When Sharon saw this first peek of my quilt top she immediately decided to make her own version and from there the idea for Sharon to design the free PDF quilt pattern to offer was decided. Because SHaron had written the free pattern for her Charming One quilt featuring Kismet last fall, she thought this would be a perfect pattern to continue the beginner-friendly series she started of easy quilts and named this quilt pattern Charming Nine. Now you can Find both patterns on her Free Projects page. Isn't she the best!

Before I share more pics of my quilt I want to share a glimpse of Sharon's amazing version, made with a beautiful, lower volume palette full of soft colors that include a variety of scraps from her upcoming Lilliput collection (due out soon) along with prints from her Kismet, Spirited, my Homebody and a mix of AGF denim, solids & blenders. Just look at this soft, dreamy quilt!

Sharon is so good she even completed quilting and binding hers beautifully for today's quilt reveal and PDF pattern release! 

I'll be sending both of my tops to Brooke at Lady Belle Quilting for her edge to edge long arm quilting service, so to make my reveal feel special I took my quilt tops to one of my favorite nearby spots to photograph! It was a cool 60 degrees, an although there's still snow and ice on the ground in spots, it felt like Spring was finally visiting Potter County!

  7. Hello everyone in this forum, I will keep sharing my own experience with the world. What Dr Ebhota has done for me, he cures my HERPES VIRUS . I was suffering from HERPES VIRUS for more than 3years until i got the email of this great herbal doctor from the internet and chose to give him a trial to see if he can really help me. To my greatest surprise this man helped me with his herbal medicine and now my pains are all gone, I went to the hospital to do some tests and the result came out negative. I am free from my HERPES VIRUS sickness and am very happy now, i would like you to email him if you are suffering from any STD on his email: drebhotasolution@gmail.com https://drebhotasolution.wixsite.com/drebhotaherbalhome/
