Hi Everyone...Well, I said there might be a quilt in my future. I found this cute and easy pattern here at Sew Mama Sew. The fabric is from Joann's, from a line by Heidi Grace. I think the colors and pattern are so cheerful. The line includes a stripe that I will use to bind the quilt and a graphic print that I plan on using for the backing.
The pattern called Charm Squares Baby Quilt, calls for 38 charm squares. Charm squares are 5x5 precut blocks that represent a complete fabric collection. I used yardage, but with a rotary cutter, it took a short while till I had all the pieces cut and ready to sew.
I used a white on white print for the sashing between.
I had so much fun doing this quilt for my grand daughter. Now to get it to a wonderful machine quilter I know to put it together for me. I have mentioned before that this is the difference between getting the quilt done and it hanging around for years...yes, I said years, until it's quilted. My own dear son was around 18 years old when I finally had someone machine quilt his baby quilt. I started it before he was born!
I'm in the sewing mood, so off to the machine. Happy February dear friends. Enjoy this beautiful day!
