We’re kicking off a brand new sew along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop today – it’s the Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along Week 1!
Charming Baby Quilts (affiliate link) is a new book from Melissa Corry and all the quilts are designed for use with charm packs! They’re perfect for baby quilts but also they’re just darling and would be great for anyone.
In this Sew Along we’re making a sampler quilt using blocks from all the quilts in the book – it’s such a great design!
Charming Baby Sew Along Week 1
This week we’re starting things off with blocks from the A Star is Born Quilt and the Color in the Lines Quilt. Both these blocks were so fun to make.
I used my new Singing in the Rain fabrics that just hit stores. It’s full of bright florals, little umbrellas and rain boots! So fun for Spring.
The Star is Born Quilt Block is a big showy star – I love the patchwork look to it, even though it’s all Singing in the Rain fabric!
For the sampler quilt, you’ll need four Color in the Lines blocks. I was careful with my layout so I’d be able to keep all my directional prints going the same way. It was super simple with the charm pack squares!
I think this is going to be such a fun, colorful quilt, don’t you?
There are super fabulous quilters sewing along with the Charming Baby sampler! You can check out all the websites and their versions of the blocks over on the Fat Quarter Shop blog!
There will also be a giveaway every week, hosted by one of quilters sewing along, for those participating in the sew along! You can find the info on how to enter on the Fat Quarter Shop blog!
And it’s not too late to dive in! Head to the Fat Quarter Shop to find out all the details and download the sew along schedule.
Stop back next week for my version of Week 2’s Quilt Blocks!
