I’m very much loving the fabrics in the Urban Chicks Dream On line… Moda released some of the precuts early, and I managed to snag a few online, but now I can’t wait for the yardage to become available this Fall. I think the stripes might be my favorite, though I’m also loving all the vintage floral prints.
Since I had some extra charm packs, and the desire to sew a couple of quick quilts, I made up some half square triangles and sewed them together for this cute little mini quilt. My favorite part of this one has to be the quilting, which was inspired by the quilting Kate did on this mini quilt.
I went for fewer lines, but I love the chevron stripe pattern, especially on the backing, which is a super soft Amy Butler solid.
It’s bound in some more AB solidsÂ in a darker pink with a couple orange sections. This would make a great quilt for a newborn, and might also transition nicely into a security blanket/quilt for a toddler.
Since I had such fun with the quilting, I made up a second charm square quilt with the same fabrics and the same backing, and did a similar quilting pattern. Cute as a little matched set, no?
The baby quilt is already on its way to a new owner, but the mini version is still available in the shop.
