I used to be addicted to Charm Packs. They're ideal for scappy-coordinated quilts - I've got a box full of them, along with Jelly Rolls and don't even get me started on how many Layer Cakes I've got packed away! Anyway, another new arrival into the family means another quilt and a quick look through my box of charm squares revealed this one - Prairie Paisley by Minick and Simpson for Moda, which is a pretty collection of red, blue and cream flowers and paisley patterns. This was pieced together very simply, using a Moda Bakeshop pattern by Teaginny Designs which was a free PDF download...
...I've made this particular quilt pattern several times as it's a simple design and always looks great in whatever fabrics are used. I've quilted it very simply in a variegated cream Gutermann Sulky 40wt thread. Most of the quilting is in straight rows and forsomething a little bit different, I decided to free motion quilt the new arrival's name in the wider side border. The lettering was based on the style that Nancy Halvorsen uses in her Winsome Baby book...
...it was only when I'd pieced the top together and completed the quilting that I realised I'd used the same fabrics for the new arrival's older sister in 2019 - thank goodness this time I used a different quilt pattern! Well this just needs to be wrapped and sent off to it's new owner and I'll share a picture of the completed quilt once it has arrived.
...if you want to see the quilt that I made for Margot's elder sister, Matilda, here's a link to the blog post where I shared some pictures and wrote all about it!
