I made this quilt LONG time ago, but felt it was missing something. When my friend had a baby called Vonn, I thought adding his name to the blanket would be the thing to spice it up.
2) Time for Teddy (for boy)
I completely forgot to take photos before giving this to the recipient. Ooops. But I managed to get ahold of some pics. The front consists of 5" squares and the backing is all one print.
Using pretty much the same fabrics as the previous quilt, I made a more girly version.
The front uses disappearing 9-patches (a great tutorial here), and the backing is all one print. There is one boo boo on the front, but I don't think anyone notices it!
4) Moda picnic
I love Moda charm packs. They are easy to use and you get to sample all the print designs in a fabric line. For the front, I used one charm pack and the border is a Michael Miller argyle.
Sometimes I try saving money by buying various cuts of sale fabric, but since I often default to making 5" square blankets, I find I end up with A LOT of random fabric left over and that annoys me (I like to maximize every inch). Charm packs, on the other hand, are usually all used up and often yield a more colorful/energetic/aesthetically pleasing quilt. Moving forward, I will stick to charm packs!
