It's done! Well, technically, *almost* done. But, done enough to post!!
I apologize in advance for the crummy pictures. It's rainy and very gray out, I have a to-do list 3 miles long and a 3-year-old who has traded his nap for a thousand interruptions. So, I didn't get a chance to iron the quilt or wait for nice light. But, this'll have to do because I really want to share!
It came out of the wash all nice and crinkly! I am happy with the binding choice. I didn't want anything to overwhelm the already very contrast-intense quilt top. The pink and white stripes add a nice, subtle touch. What do you think?
I said earlier the quilt was *almost* done, because I still need to go around the binding with a sewing needle and fix all the spots where my sewing machine didn't quite catch it. I think I might stop trying to attach quilt binding with the machine. The sewing-in-the-ditch never works out, no matter how meticulously I approach it, and the perfectionist in me ends up frustrated at the end of a long project that, up until that point, has worked out pretty well. Blind stitching around a quilt seems so daunting, though. Sigh.
In any case, after a couple of evenings on the couch with thread and needle in hand, this Charming Baby Quilt should be ready to go to its new home and await the arrival of its little recipient!
I have loved using a charm pack for the first time and coming up with this pattern. It is so super-duper easy and I'll work on writing it out so you guys can make the quilt too. I imagine it's very simple to adapt to a larger size of your choice. I'll try to work on it this weekend so I can share it next week (fingers crossed).
Would you make this pattern? What projects have you made with charm packs?
