Basic Grey + Curio = Knickknackery

As you know, I all things Basic Grey. I can't seem to get enough of them. I think I may have or be in the process of making a quilt in every line they've ever come out with. I love, Love, LOVE Basic Grey!!!!

Above is an original pattern that I am working on using Basic Grey Curio line from Moda

It will be 54" x 54" and has a working title of Knickknackery

What do you heart? What can you not get enough of? What will you drive a 100 miles just to get?

Please note the colors may be off as I took the photos at night.

Until next time,


  1. Shoot! Everything. Quilt shops and even JoAnn's is a 3 hour trip for me! Thank goodness for online shopping! Curio is fabulous, isn't it? I love the colors.

  2. that is a lovely line!! If I drove 100 miles I'd be in the sea!!! ;)
    Looking forward to seeing your design!

  3. When do you ever have time to work?

  4. Hi Charlie,
    Love your quilt design and the fabric. Just found your blog from a retweet from Basic Grey. I have been quilting since 1992 and scrapbooking since 2000 but did not realize until this year that Basic Grey had a quilt line too. They have been my favorite scrapbooking co for a long time. No local quilt shop, I live just north of you in St. Joseph, MO. I used to work & play at Liberty Quilt shop but it closed several years ago:( Glad to find your blog, will be following. I have several UFO's that need put together and a few more that only need quilting. Need to get back in to quilting, not just my paper crafting. Too little time, too many things I love to do.
    Happy Quilting!

  5. I love your blog Charlie!!!! Thanks for doing it for all of us!

  6. I'm doing Fig Tree's Saltwater Taffy in Curio right now. I, too, love all things Basic Grey.
