Love Charm Quilt #46

Sometimes you just want to make a simple project.  2017 was the first time I joined a block swap and I met a lovely lady who was doing NICU quilts with her swap blocks.  Her son was a graduate of NICU so it was personal to her.  I had a couple of quilts that I had made that were smaller sizes so I included them with her block.

Fast forward to the Instagram and the #getyourquiltywishesgranted3.  Hilary had asked for NICU quilts.  I had a few more around that I sent to her, but had that need to make a simple no thought quilt.  So I pulled out a colorful charm pack and a white charms pack and off we go.

Decided to use the Moda Bake Shop, Moda Love Charm Quilt.

Had to hit the local quilt shop, which is small and doesn’t have a large selection for backing and binding.  Found a Grunge, by Moda.  Decided to use it for both the backing and binding.

I had some variegated red/orange/pink thread and used that for the quilting.  You guessed it, walking foot, squiggle line, edge to edge.  I really do like the texture feel this quilting gives.

I was very lucky today we had a sliver of sun this afternoon, after days of dreary cold rain.  Still cold, but is nice to see a bit of sun.

    Hi Jan,
    Ooooh, this is lovely! That quilting just pushes it over the edge for me. I love the fabric choices, and the pattern – it really enhances the fabric . But those squiggly lines – ooh, that is fab. I love seeing straight-line stitching. I can only imagine how comfy and squishy it feel. Someone will be lucky to receive it and will feel all the love you stitched into it. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Look at your quilting, you almost rookie. It’s perfect for this quilt. I’m going to have to follow your lead and try doing this. Maybe it would help if you would do a video to help out the problem sister. Hee Hee.

    Really really cool! Great pattern – I have quite a few charm packs that would be ideal for that design.

    The wavy crosshatch is awesome! I’m definitely going to have to try that on one of my quilts! It looks so fabulous!
