I was able to finish this little baby quilt last week amidst all the craziness. Whoop! The charm pack was given to me by a friend who doesn’t work with these colors. I added the gray squares and will be donating this to a local quilting group for a community baby shower.
There were 21 squares in this charm pack and I used all of them. I would have loved to have taken out the striped pieces, but I’m trying really hard to use fabric on hand and not create more scraps than I have to. So, I took a deep breath and used all 21 pieces. Yay me!
Because the design of the quilt is so plain, I decided to play with the quilting a bit. I figured I could get in some practice using a ruler along with the stitch regulator. There are a few bobbles here and there, but overall I’m really happy with the quilting. You can really see the design on the flannel back.
And another picture of the back…
I used Kona Steel for the binding and love the way it frames the quilt. The gray squares are Kona Ash, taken from a layer cake I had on hand.
I’m excited to have this little quilt finished – who knew I would have time to stitch last week? I have another WIP I will be working on this week – I talked about it in this post about scraps in November. Looking through my posts I realized I never shared the finished flimsy, so I guess it will be a surprise when I finally get to share the finished quilt with you! I have a buyer for this one (Yes, a scrap quilt! I was so surprised!), so I really want to get going on it. All I have to do is make the back and then baste, quilt, and bind.
I apologize for not getting to visit all of the posts that were linked up last week. Mom is back home and doing well, so this week I will get to read all about your crushes and fantastic projects! So let’s see what you are crushing on this week!! You can link up any blog post or Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
