Have you seen the new fabrics from Moda called A Stitch In Color by Malka Dubrawsky? They are full of fun colors like teal, gray, organge, citron, red and splashes of white. Soooo cute! I bought a charm pack the other day and whipped up an apron and have one more laid out on the floor (see last 2 photos in this post for finished apron).
So before my local shop ran out of charm packs and yardage I dashed there and bought more to make a baby quilt for a darling couple who are expecting their first baby (a girly)! This new mommy likes bright colors and patterns so I was excited to get going on this with these fabrics! I cut the charm pack squares into quarters and laid them out onto one piece of fabric and will just top stitch down the rows from top to bottom and side to side, through the top/batting/and backing. Quilt-as-you-go! Easy!
Thought I might pick the polkadot on the right (citron with teal dots) to make a ruffle around the edge of the quilt.
