Loving charm squares
I have quite a few charm squares tucked away in my stash, and today I decided to have a play around with one of them using a pattern in this book. My daughters boss is expecting a baby girl in a few months so I made one that will be a gift for her baby. I still have to put the borders on, quilt and bind it but thought I would show it off so far.
It looks quite simple, but in fact it was quite a challenge getting all of the strips lined up. I will be using a border of one of the white prints that is featured in the charm pack. The original pattern does not have the white (peeper) border around this centre panel but I wanted to frame it.
The name of the pattern (in the book) is Dora, but I have renamed my version baby windows.
The fabric I have used in my design is Lovely by Sandy Gervais for Moda. Its lots of pretty sprigs of flowers, the charm pack also features some checks and stripes but I only used the florals as the quilt only needed 25 squares.
