TGIFF - Wonky Charms Baby Quilt

This finish has been a long time coming.  Jayne @ Twiggy and Opal shared a wonderful tutorial here that I highly recommend.

The quilt top was finished back in April, but I didn't make up my mind on how to quilt it, so it sat around my sewing room until this past week.  I chose the easy route and did loop FMQ.


I quilted the loops close together (not intentional), so it gave the quilt some texture.


It's 25-inches squares, so it's destined to be a baby quilt for the stroller or car seat.  I think I'll make the next one a little bit bigger.


This is the second finish of my FAL Q3 goals.

Now to get back to the many WIP's hiding in my sewing room.

What a bright, fun quilt! The colors are so nice and that bright green binding really makes it pop!

Lorna McMahon said...

This is really sweet! It's a great pattern for showing off some random squares of goodness. And the loopy quilting gives a nice contrast to the squares!

Beautiful finish! The quilting pattern was prefect to add texture without taking away from the design.

The loops were a perfect choice to add texture to those wonky squares. Congrats on a great finish. That would be the perfect size for a car seat or stroller blanket.

Very pretty! I need to make a few quick quilts with packs of charm packs that I have. Maybe this little pattern will be next ;)

Brilliant way to use up charms or mini charms and a great I-spy project. Love the texture from the quilting and hope you enjoy making the next one. Congratulations on the finish and thanks for linking up to the FAL quarter three on behalf of your team of hosts
