Charms – Easy Baby Quilt

My latest finished project (YAY!) is a baby girl quilt I made with charms from a pack I had purchased. These “charm packs” are available at quilt shops and online. They are precut squares that are 5-inches squared and cut of coordinating fabrics. They are handy if your stash of fabrics at home isn’t necessarily coordinating. You can buy them on sale too.

I made 4-patch blocks using light/dark or light/solid. I then laid them out on a table to find the best setting. Then I framed it in white and found the bright pink binding. I used some Thinsulate batting I had, so it is plush and should be warm. I also used white sheeting for the back.

 

 

I then decided to use a block-based, free-motion style quilting in each 4-patch block that rotated around the center of the block and is continuous within each block.

This is a fun and easy way to free-motion quilt. I found it in a book by Eva A. Larkin.

 

You can get many ideas for quilting from your local library and on the internet. 😀
