Another quilt finish!

I have a rule; when I go outside to spray baste a quilt, I always spray baste at least one other quilt. It is just because I spray baste outside, so because I have to clean my outdoor table, carry batting, spray baste, scissors etc outside I always do at least 2. So yesterday this charity quilt was the 'bonus' quilt I basted:


I quilted it yesterday afternoon after I finished the quilt I blogged about yesterday.

Henry the photo-bomber approves:


It is a crib quilt, I made the 6 blocks at quilt retreat last year, each block has 36 mini charm squares from the Moda mini charm pack of the month club.


These mini charms were all modern prints so it's an adorable array:


I LOVE a finish!


It is backed in a fun octopus print and quilted in loops. Hopefully a child will cherish it.

    1. Yes the octopuses had a lot of the fun colors that the mini charm squares have and I've been trying to use up some of my novelty print hoard. This quilt will be donated to a high school for teen moms that I volunteer at. I love this one so much I think I'll make myself one eventually minus the octopuses lol.

    1. That's what I LOVE about using mini charms. As long as you choose ones that have similar colors in a quilt even simple patterns look terrific because the pieces are so little.
