Quilt in a Day

By Holly - 2/08/2012 04:45:00 PM

Thanks to my mother-in-law, Julie, last summer, I decided to make a quilt. Funny thing - I still haven't made that quilt I had originally set out to make, but I have managed to make 3 other quilts, with plans and fabric for 3 more.

This quilt is for my dear friend Keshet's sweet new baby - Happy Birthday little one!

In Utah, is my favorite quilt store ever and I just happened to have planned a trip there anyway, so when I found out she had made her debut, I decided this would be the perfect reason to make a quilt :) Deciding on the fabric took me almost an hour - so many pretty things in that store.

I was super excited about finishing this quilt, because I wanted to try out my new quilting foot that I had purchased a few months ago. Free form quilting is SO much fun! I was literally smiling while I was doodling all over the borders.

1 charm pack (with 6 squares removed) or 36 5"x5" squares
2/3 yd white fabric
2/3 yd pink fabric
1 1/2 yd backing fabric

I drew up a simple pattern in photoshop for this quilt. The final quilt size is approximately 42" x 42". If you are interested in the step by step  instructions, e-mail me at holly.humbert@gmail.com and I will send them over to you.

Thanks for stopping by today.
The giveaway is still open until midnight tonight, so if you haven't entered, you can get in just under the wire.
