AMH Charm Along – Toxic

I’ve finally had the chance to take some photos of my beautiful finished AMH Charm Along Quilt – which I have named “Toxic”. This beauty came about when I pulled out my pencil and graph paper.  I wanted to do something special with these charms, and I had this most amazing cobalt blue solid to pair with them.  Turns out I like working with triangles!
