Have you ever had one of those moments when you realize that your sister in law is having a baby tomorrow and you are a quilter and haven't made her baby a quilt yet?
This is my very story! My truth. My life! ...yesterday afternoon :/
Luckily I am a manic quilter with a healthy stash of sa-weet fabric! ...including this super awesome charm pack of April Showers that I bought for TWO DOLLARS from Southern Fabric a while back :-)
I needed something simple and sweet (and quick). I simply cut strips of white fabric 1.5" wide. I sewed the white strips to two adjacent sides of each charm square. (I strip pieced all of the blocks)
...and then laid them out like so...
...and sewed them up :-). You will need to add a strip of white to the two sides that are missing white ;-)
I prefer this method to others as this method makes it really easy to match and nest your seams for perfect intersections :-)
For this baby quilt I used one charm pack and less than 3/4 yard of white.
The backing is an old piece of a Michael Miller print I have had for years!
I used the same fabric for the backing and the binding.
For the free motion quilting, I did a swirl pattern.
The finished size is 34.5" x 40". The perfect baby size quilt :-)
