Pinks Charming

is my latest quilt finish.

I saw this quilt on the CrazyMom blog and decided 


this was the perfect use for these 'charming' fabrics



I started with a mini charm pack of

"Color Me Happy"...

adding strips of a Lecien solid in pale mint green.

I then put it aside until I knew whether it would 

go to a girl or boy. 


And now it is finished...

with Gum Leaves from Terra Australis 2


and bound in 

Spinning Gum from Terra Australis 1



Backing was in my stash;

it came from I know not where?



And quilted with my favourite wavy line!

Final measurements:
 35" x 48" approx

Happy days!

  2. This is great, Suz, I love all that negative space and the small focal area. Very cool indeed. (Now that's done are you ready to crack on with your blue UFO?)

  3. I love how you take us from the beginning of a quilt to its completion, in a few easy steps. I mean a few easy, charming steps that makes us believe we can do this too. This baby quilt is sweet and I love that you were able to tilt it towards boy or girl by that outer fabric. Very cute!

  8. I am a huge fan of very wide borders! It reminds me of artwork matted and framed. So sweet'

  9. This has turned into a lovely quilt. It has not occurred to me to part make a quilt and then wait to add fabric after the baby arrived. Great idea.
