Mini Charm Chocolate Quiltalong

Here is my Mini Charm Chocolates Baby Quilt.

My quilt is featured today on

I love this quilt!

I started Here with these wonderful

Fragile  fabrics

and added Bella Bright Turquoise Here


Fat Quarter Shop

Free Pattern Here

You may purchase this lovely quilt kit Here

or choose your own fabrics and follow the free video tutorial Here

The center of my quilt was made following the fun and easy pattern.
When it came time to finish my quilt top ...

I picked a few extra mini charms and sprinkled them into my border.
I used four rounds of 2.5" strips and mini charms to sew my border.

My finished quilt measures 46" by 39"

For the quilting I chose
Aurifil 5006 - a pretty light aqua.

For the quilting I used my heavy duty walking foot
and stitched easy waves for a windblown effect.
I used two layers a=of Dream Puff batting to give it extra pouf.

When it came time to bind my quilt I added ribbon tags
for baby fingers to play.

My thoughts on baby quilts are that they should be oversized,
placed on floors, on the ground at the park
and shared with furry friends.

I finished it with a two-color machine finished binding
and added an extra line of stitches in the flange
so the ribbon tabs would hold up to lots of tugging.

A tutorial is coming soon of how I make this binding.

I love this windswept backing fabric!

I love this bold and graphic fabric line!

I do not know for whom I made this quilt.

It is going into a plastic storage for the baby to come along.

A big Thank You to the wonderful people at the

Fat Quarter Shop

for another wonderful Quilt Along project!
