Its a Hoot charm square quilt finished

I just love Moda precuts, they make it easy to piece together lap and cot quilts, and I have managed to get three of these made in recent months - all from charm square packs.

The most recent one is called its a Hoot and is going to be put away for my new little grandaughter who is due in December to come out of the hatching pot (grin).

Last night I finished stitching the binding, and managed to get the quilting done over the weekend.

I free motioned quilted around the birds that are on the border fabric with loops between them.

And did a simple in the ditch around each square section with a cross across the centre

I love the bright colours in this charm pack, its going to be a great tummy time floor quilt - or easy one to take to mothers  group or even use in the cot.

The pattern is from my three times the charm book, I love love love this book, and am sure there is more charms square quilts to come.

Below are the other two nursery quilts I have made using this pattern book, a pack of charm squares and some extra fabric from my stash.

Before I sign off for the night, I also want to say thank you to everyone that has posted a comment on my blog and sorry for not personally emailing you to say thanks.  Last week has been extremely busy for us on the home front and I just never got the chance to do this, and now time has passed it does not seem right.
But I love to read your comments, and share your friendship, even if I do not always find the time to reply to them.

Quilted hugs, Sue xxx
