For the Philly Modern Quilt Guild’s May meeting, we were issued a challenge. Take one charm pack of Robert Kaufman Kona solids (the Brights variety) and make something adding only prints.
Julie’s pattern uses partial seams ::::gasp!::::: Super scary, right?! Wrong! Easy as pie, really!!!
These blocks went together super quick and before I knew it, I had a quilt top.
For the back, I ran to JoAnn’s and picked up some Kona cotton in Coal(?) and pieced in my left over charm squares (plus a few extra) to make a pretty rainbow. I LOVE the back.
I went back and forth debating how to quilt it. In the end, I went with straight line quilting vertically. I really like the way the back looks with the vertical lines.
And scrappy binding made from left over jellyroll strips from another It’s a Hoot quilt.
It’s a decent sized quilt….approximately 54x54”. It will be living with me and is the first of many quilts I’ll be making for our new baby …coming October 2011. Officially halfway there and so excited!
