I’ve had some time off recently, and have been getting on with a bit of sewing. One of the projects I was working on was a baby quilt for Mel and Liam. I wanted to follow the Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Oh, Fransson. I had a charm pack of ‘Arcadia’ by Sanae for Moda and a FQ of one of the fabrics in the Arcadia collection (‘Retreat’ in Ocean), and a weekend at home alone.
First up, I did the necessary cutting and laid out the pieces.
Then there was a trip to the fabric shop for sashing and backing fabric followed by zig-zagging some bits of batting together to make one large bit of batting, and then it was ready to sandwich.
I had just enough fabric for the binding. It’s now washed and ready to give to Mel and Liam! The weather’s been so bad that I’ve struggled to get any decent photos of this quilt, but hopefully this shot with some fairy lights will do until the weather improves…
The quilt pattern (Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Oh, Fransson) is fantastic free tutorial from Elizabeth Hartman. It’s quick and easy, as promised, and the final result is a lovely handmade present for any new baby.
