Sweet Marmalade Baby Blankie

SWEET Konda gave me 2 mini charm packs of Marmalade :)  I stared at them for a while and then decided to make granny squares out of them.  The two mini charm packs make exactly 7 granny squares if you use the border fabric for the centers :)

Originally I was going to make them into table runners, but then I realized that they would make the most AMAZING baby blanket.

I fooled around with the layout and decided I needed to beg Konda for another mini charm pack.  She graciously dropped another over :)  KONDA ROCKS!!!

So, Wednesday afternoon I got busy and made the CUTEST BABY BLANKET EVER!!! ;D

My 15 year old daughter laid the quilt out for me.  
Didn't she do a GREAT job?

I learned how to make the monogram letter at the Utah County Modern Quilt meeting this month.  Thanks, Anna!!

One of my kids asked what the "M" was for.  I told them it was for "Marion" ;)  (The baby's name that it is for is McKayla)  My kids just looked at me like I was NUTS!!

I used pink minky for the backing with AWESOME vintage black gingham :)

I did swirly fmq.  It only took me about 30 minutes to quilt :)  Whoo Hoo!!!

The quilt measures 39" x 39".  I will deliver it asap :)

I will post a tutorial HERE next Tuesday(11/27/12) on how to make a patchwork monogram :)
