So, I went out to my local fabric store and bought one charm pack which are 42 5" squares. Forty two, I thought. That will make a whole quilt. Bless my heart.
Sorry for the picture quality. They all have too much light.Once I layed out the squares, I realized I needed more just to make it baby quilt size. So, I cut out some solid whites and added those.
Anyway, this quilt sat in the UFO pile for some time. I didn't really like the fabric I had chosen and I didn't have anyone to give it to so I didn't see a reason to finish it. Plus it was pretty wonky. Seams that REALLY didn't match. Borders that were just WRONG. It was a hot mess.
But a couple months ago, I got it back out (in my effort to finish some of my UFO's this summer) and I quilted it and bound it.
It's still a hot mess but it's a finished hot mess. I think that I will keep it so that I can see where I started and see my progress as I go along. I still need to work on my binding but I'm getting pretty good at piecing and my quilting is improving.
And surprisingly, even then, I prefered a pieced back.
And always remember your label.
Statistics on this quilt:
Fabric - Moda but I don't remember the line, white fabric is also Moda. The polka dotted fabric that I used on the back and for the wonky border was a fabric in the line. My binding fabric, the green and white stripe, is from Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille.
Size - Approximately 40 inches by 40 inches.
