Have you noticed Granny Squares are everywhere in the quilting world? I definitely have noticed, and I've been dying to make a block or two. So go figure, I had some scraps left over from a previous quilt (if there is one thing I can tell you about myself, it's that I hate to see my fabric scraps go to waste and sit in a dark closet all by their lonesome). So I made a block, and really loved how it turned out. So I kept at it and made this small baby quilt for some friends of ours.
The line is Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille.
Here's a close up of the embroidery. Charlee Ann such a sweet name that I had to put it in a fun whimsical font.
One of my favorite features of this quilt is using different color strips for the binding, no two strips are the same giving it such a playful feel. (Also goes back the fact I avoid putting anything in my scrap basket!)
One last picture... I used floppy daisy as the quilting design with a white thread to not take away from the quilt. I thought with the bright colors in the fabric the design was perfect. I hope little Charlee enjoy's her new quilt!
